Congrats on your new ride!
Depending on the "in service" date, it may not even be a year old and 17K miles means that you have at least 3+ years left on the warranty (if you drive under 10K/year like I do) so the bottom line is that "you don't NEED the warranty UNTIL the manufacturer's warranty runs out" some 3+ years from now, right? Why pay ANYBODY $3K now when you can simply wait those 3 years and then buy whatever coverage you want at that time (for less $'s)???

What do you mean "upgrade the base sound system"? Are you saying that you are going to buy some aftermarket sound system or that you are planning on buying the bits to convert the base to a premium system? If so, you'd be the first I have heard of even considering something that extreme. If you ARE a TRUE audio-file and ambitious enough to pursue something like B&O or B&W audio, please keep us informed of what and how you do it.

PS - If you are even considering putting one of those HUGE-ARSE subs in the cargo space, you are not IMHO, an audiofile
