Help me decide which GT to pick

I am buying a 2010 550i GT. Found 2 cars that I am interested but I have a hard time to decide which one to pick.

Car A: highly optioned with original $93k MSRP. Warranty expires in 16 month.
Car B: $74k with most of options I want but lack of Active Steerting + Sports Pack + Dynamic Handling which I wish to have. Warranty has not been activated yet.

The reason why I cannot decide to which car to buy is because Car A has the options I want but it only has 16 months of warranty left. Because it is highly opted so I am worried about repair cost once something broke down. I did find an extended warrany company called Route66 and it seems to be reputable but still factory warranty is better than any of non-factory warranty. So I'd like to know how reliable this car is. I've owned 5 BMWs in the past with one 335i lemon that does make me feel nervous about it.

I've read some posts on the forum and elsewhere saying Active Steering/Dynamic handling package is a must for this car. What difference do they make?

Please share your experiences with me to help me make the decision.
