I'd NOT pay for any maintenance plans- find a good independent mechanic, roll up your sleeves on the forums, and figure out what needs to be done. ATF change, oil and filters, fuel filter, coolant, brake fluid... all are outside of warranty. And an indy can tell you of any little leak, defect, torn businging or boot, that you can then take to the dealer and say "fix it".

Hope this helps!

thanks, its a one owner full BMW service history car, and i do around 40k per year. Great advice about the indy.
