Third party warranties can be tricky places....go over it with a fine-tooth comb *before* signing on the dotted line....you want to be 110% sure about what`s *included*, and what`s *excluded*, and if there`s any form of co-payment required.
These things are always a crapshoot....you`re gambling that something IS going to happen to the car, the warranty company is gambling that *nothing`s* gonna happen....sometimes, you`re better off taking that $4,000 and putting it into a separate interest-bearing account somewhere, as a "rainy-day fund", to be used for any needed repairs. If you`re lucky, and nothing happens to the car, the dough is still in *your* pocket, not the warranty company`s....

Aftermarket warranties are usually not worth it at all and bogus.
Jake, that's not true. What Bob says is the ticket. There are some very good aftermarket warranties. It's actually not hard to find one that is more comprehensive than the BMW CPO warranty.
