I'm in Colorado as well, and have a 35i on order. Anxious to see how it does on the Denver-Vail trip. I'm counting on the 35i turbo to do better than my (former) 2002 Tahoe.

That makes sense. Would the extended warranty rates be significantly higher after 4 years? Is having an extended warranty even a good practice? I have never purchased one.
