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?
Are you saying your sunroof, bushings, and regulators were not covered and you had to pay out of pocket to fix them??

And that was exactly my point about the radiator. It's preventative if i just ask them to replace it, and it wouldn't be covered by the warranty. But if it actually breaks then it should be covered by the extended warranty.
