Yes extended maintenance and extended warranty are 2 separate things. I bought them together and paid somewhere around 3-3.3K for both (can't remember the exact figure). It is for things that break. The dealers typically sell their own versions of extended warranties, but BMW sells one as well, and that is the one that I got. Even with that, I had issues with the sunroof, control arm bushings, and power window regulators that needed to be addressed.

I don't think you can get the radiator/transmission stuff covered by either of these because those are purely preventative. Are they even recommended in the BMW service manual?
