Granted this is on a my 2004 E53, I bought extended 5 year 100K warranty on it 2 months before factory warranty ran out. Cost me $3,600. I had in 4 years $12K in repairs so it more than paid for itself. At the end the company sent an adjuster/inspector for each claim, the last being $5,800 to replace the eccentric shafts and also fix the broken sunroof. I had to guarantee that I'd pay the tear down costs of the engine to prove it was really what BMW service was saying it was.

I was without my car for 3 weeks for this and no rental for the first 1.5 weeks due to the delay from my 3rd party company. Then the dealer gave me a BMW X3 as a loaner.

It was worth it but boy does it make you gun shy about owning one of these things after the warranty runs out.
