Scheduled Maintenance (+2 years, 75K miles): $2000
Full Maintenance (+1, 50k): $3100
Full Maintenance (+2, 75k): $4550
Full Maintenance (+3, 100k): $6000
Full Maintenance (+4, 125k): $7100

Any thoughts on if I should grab these offers given my low mileage? Does it look like there is room for a discount/negotiation? Also which of these options would be the sweet spot. I'll also be getting mechanical breakdown insurance from my lender, so no need for a warranty extension.
Absolutely not!

Since you don't drive many miles, you need to go the time interval instead of miles interval.

All you need is an oil change once a year and cabin air filter (depend if you live in a dirty area, LA is super dirty) every 3rd year, change out your intake filters and replace spark plugs.

An oil change should cost you 100 bucks.

Year 1 - $100 dollar oil change, plus 20 dollar cabin air filter
Year 2 - $100 dollar oil change, plus 20 dollar cabin air filter
Year 3 - $100 dollar oil change, plus 20 dollar cabin air filter, plus $50 (its like 20 each on FCP) dollar intake filter(s), plus 100 dollar for brake fluid change, plus 600ish for spark plug service

So the next 3 years should cost you around ~1200 dollars if you take it to an indy shop for oil change, brake fluid, and spark plug, and replace your air filters yourself (which is a simple jobish)
