Mein Auto: ED 330i
My advice is to go for the platinum warranty if you decide to buy. And make sure you buy longer term if you don't plan to hit 100k miles within a shorter warranty period as most parts wear out based upon mileage, not time.

Since our OEM warranty expired, we've had 2 major repairs on our 330i. The first cost $400 at our local indy shop, the second was $700 - if you go to the dealer you can add +$200 each. Neither would have been covered by the powertrain warranty.

So we are still ahead of the game at the 74k/5-year mark and counting.
1993 325i - gone!
1997 328i - gone!
