Extended warranty food for thought

So I have been waiting to get to 49,500 to get my last free service before I go on MB extended warranty. Last week I noticed my '02 320 didn't upshift. Tried to do it manually and nothing happened. Figuring it was a "brain cramp", I shut down and restarted. Transmission fine.

Monday, same thing happened. Called my SA to get this looked at and get my last service done, no big deal? Wrong. The electronic controller was sending upshift fault signals. They have ordered the part. After they install, they run the test again. If it is still sending, they replace the transmission.

Imagine this a month later with no warranty.
Electronic controller, $1500. Transmission, $3000. Extended warranty? Priceless. Great Tysinger SA? Double priceless.

Extended Warranty was a no brainer for me.
Like our fellow up top. Despite four long years of regular trips to the dealer. Car's been fine since we went off of origianl warranty in august.
But, I sleep better at night knowing I have four more years and up to 100k of coverage. $2K well invested
