We'll see what they come back with.

I also inquired about the extended warranty and maintenance. The combined would be about $5,800 to add two more years and 50k miles. I'm currently at 3 years 45k so if I buy this I would be getting esentially get 3 more years.

I'm giving it serious consideration. Too many little things to go wrong with this car to feel comfortable without it.

One Gremlin could get you into the $500 plus range real quick, and it is it an ECU or such, into the $1,000's.
Go find the recent update to the extended warranty thread. Someone just bought a warranty and I think the price he said was $3-3.5k less than your combined price. Meaning you'd be paying $3-3.5k for a maintenance plan .... Personally if you want these things then shop around dealerships and site sponsors, you do not have to buy it from your dealership to use it at your dealership.
