Platinum warranty?

I'm in the process of completing a long distance purchase of an '18 340i 6MT w/ 7k miles. Dealer offering 6 year/60k miles "platinum" warranty w/ $100 deductible.

As I understand it, 6 years from today (1.5 yrs factory remaining, so effectively a 4.5 year warranty), and 60k miles from today - so 67k miles total. Price $2k.

Worth it?

Dealer also offering full ceramic coat and interior treatment for $549. I know these things are usually money makers - but the prices we landed on are a big drop from the original quoted price. Tempted, but curious what others have experienced.

Is the warranty the BMW OEM Extended Warranty or a MBI from a 3rd party? Since the deductible is $100, I'm guessing the latter. See my repost of my respost here.

I'd also pass on the full ceramic coat. I dont trust a dealer enough to ceramic coat the car, as trying to correct any screw up is going to cause more pain than it's worth. If you want a ceramic coat, take the car to a respected detailer.
