I have cut and pasted the below from a prior post. I believe for drivers like you (ones that are putting 20,000 plus miles a year on your car) the maintenance plan is good and will pay for itself if you buy it right.
Back in 2009 I toyed with the idea of buying an extended maintenance policy for my 2006 E60 530. I did my homework and learned a lot from the various forums. One thing that came out was BMW dealers could charge what ever they wanted to. There is no set price. Some of the prices were in the $3,000 range. Most were in the low $2,000 range with a few in the high teens.
I won't debate if they are a good purchase or not. That has been beaten to death. I decided to go ahead and buy one. I called several local BMW dealers in the Los Angeles area and found the wide range of prices as I mentioned above. One was $1,695 plus tax. Nice try, there is no tax on these policies.
In my search, I came across a posting that recommended United BMW of Gwinnett in Duluth Georgia. The Internet Sales Manager, Justin Hoisington, handles the sales of the extended maintenance policy for the dealer.
I sent him and email with the year (2006), Model (530I) and mileage (33,000) and he quickly emailed me back a price of $1,695. I sent him the key with a credit card authorization form that he emailed me and it was a done deal. I have no affiliation with Mr. Hoisington besides being a satisfied customer. I am not even sure he is still working with BMW.
Here is his information;

The other side of it is the extended warranty. On that one I elected to go with Mercury Insurance based on my SA recommendation. BMW CPO and other extended warranties do not cover some electronics or the iDrive. Mercury does.
I have bought two from them; one for my 2006 530I for $2200 zero deductible for 5 years 75,000 miles. Another for my daughters 2007 328I for $1900 zero deductible for 5 years 100,000 miles.
