CPO or Extended Warranty?

I'm about to make an offer on an 08 M5 single owner car with 44K miles. (Not currently CPO)
The original warranty and service expire in a month (end of Jan 2012).

I looking for some guidance on the following:

1. The BMW dealership said they can CPO the car for $3K or I can purchase other extended warranty options. Any recommendations here?

2. I reviewed the repair history and it looks like the plugs were replaced at 28k miles, but the brakes or SMG clutch has not bee touched. The dealer said the brakes are at 50%.
a. Is it normal for the brakes to be at 50% at 44K miles?
b. When will the SMG clutch typically need to be replaced?
c. Are both these items covered on the extended service plan?

This car has more miles than what I'm looking for, but the price is good and it seem well taken care of. My concern is that all the high cost maintenance items are about to be needed.

Thanks
