We bought the BMW Extended Warranty for my wife's 2011 335is Coupe in January 2015, about four months before the original expired. It was money well spent because in addition to a new water pump, a new rear main seal, six new injectors and spark plugs, and two coil packs, they actually replaced the entire engine at 72,000 miles for a spun bearing! This was in addition to a new turbo and charge pipe while still under the original warranty, as well as a few other smaller things.

I did Euro Delivery on my 2016 M4 in May that year. We're buying the extended warranty in January 2020!
The only thing I've found is that you can negotiate the price of the warranty much easier when you do it at new car purchase. I did this with my 911 back in 2010 and my Mazda Mx5 in 2016. I saved $1250 on the 911 warranty and $2,100 on the Mazda. I recently bought an extended warranty on my Cayenne at the end of the warranty period and negotiations went was take it or leave it.
