BMW Extended Vehicle Protection plans

I know that there have been many threads on this topic but I am looking for any CURRENT experiences and/or information on the BMW Extended Vehicle Protection plans.
My 2009 loaded 35i Zed is coming up to the end of the 4yr/50,000 factory warranty on 6/30/13.
It only has 27K in which I put the last 1000 miles on it after my pre-owned purchase at 26K miles.
I most likely will only put 2-4K miles per year on it, as it is my fun car, so I am not worried about miles BUT am concerned about age and time.
The BMW Extended Vehicle Protection is offering:
1. PowerTrain Plus (PT) for 36 months and 70,000 miles for $2,180.
2. Gold- for 36 months or 70K for $3,140.
I am leaning towards the PT and self insure the difference.
I am a very good mechanic, BUT I cannot repair the DCT Trans, turbos or the high tech parts on this machice which are costly.
I have weighed the self insurance side based upon my low mileage and then set aside mainteniance funds for repairs. This wll be Difficult at best with 2 kids in college.
This car MUST be maintained which I will do or else.
Has anybody purchased this plan or similar recently?.
If so, from where and who has the best price for the BMW same plan?.
I have seens Dealers offer these plans at discounted prices or Promo's. Any out there right now. BMW of New Haven is offering $100 off until 4-1-13
If I am going to buy a plan it will be from Bimmer ONLY and not an after market plan.

Your opinions are valued. Thanx in Advance

I can't recommend an option for you, but with the low amount of miles currently on the car and the amount you are likely to put on in the future I don't think any plan is a good choice. The chances of having a major issue over the time that you would be covered are pretty slim unless you use the car for racing or some other activity like that. With normal driving habits I think you would be wasting your money.

All,

FYI for my decision making process to extend or NOT extend the BMW warranty, see below.

In searching for the best deal on the Powertrain Plus and Gold extended warranty for my 2009 Z4 35I I got the below quote from Schaeffer BMW:

Z4 35I

84/70

Powertrain Plus, Msrp is $2180.00, I will sell for $1580.00

Gold Msrp is $3140.00, I will sell for $2540.00

No sales tax
