    I have 30 days to extend the factory warranty on my 2005 M3 -31,000 miles.

    The cost is $2000 for 2 years

    Inspection $600
    Brakes 1800
    Oil change 80

    Is it worth it. How long generally do the brakes last?

    Do I just shoot craps on the brakes? The parts cost me $1200 if I do the work myself???

    Dealer says I really should buy it. Big surprise !!

    Any Ideas

    $80 for an oil change? The dealer usually charges north of $200 for that...

    Are we talking warranty or maintenance?

    Looks like it is the extendend maintenance plan. You can get brakes and other parts at Bavauto.com, Pelicanparts.com, bimmerparts.com, etc... for way less than $1200 in brake parts. I would rather get the extended 2 year warranty, however, your mileage is rather low for being only 4 years old. You will burn through the warranty in time, meaning the warranty expires 6 years from in service date or 100K miles, whichever comes first. My advice? Save the $$$$ and invest in GM :). Really, save the money and put it in a high interest (yeah right) account and dip in it when you need repairs on the M3.
