Extended Warranty Or Not

Just registered as a new member and value input from other BMW owners---especially M6 drivers.
I have a 2008 M6 which I have owned for two years. I'm the second owner of car and purchased it on line from a dealer affiliated reseller in Chicago that had acquired the car at auction (traded a 2004 645 which I had owned for a few years). I have been very pleased with the car and have had no significant service related issues (the reseller assured me that I was purchasing a low mileage perfect car which has borne out).
Factory warranty on the car expires next month and while I only have 16K miles on the car and no service related issues since owning, I'm wondering about wisdom of purchasing extended warranty coverage. Clearly, a maintenance warranty package makes no sense given the limited number of miles that the vehicle is being driven. However, being out of general warranty on a BMW is potentially one of those scary thoughts---it was part of the motivation to trade my 645 as it was approaching being out of warranty from a time standpoint but not mileage.
Love the car and treat it with care in terms of how it is driven but would appreciate any perspective from other M6 owners that have been through similar situations.
Thanks in advance for any insight/related experience with or without extended warranty programs.
