Question E46 - Eagle Warranty Corp. Any Good?

I just purchased a pre-owned 2000 328i (E46). It has high mileage, but I'm not too concerned as I know these are good cars.

The dealer offered me an extended warranty from Eagle Warranty Corp. First, is the warranty any good at all? Second, if so -- which level would you suggest I purchase for a car with 145k miles on it?

Lastly, is there anything special I need to know about servicing the car right now?

THANKS for your replies!

Whoa, high mileage

If it hasn't already been done, you'll need to replace the following:

-spark plugs (and possibly ignition coils) ... $24 ($500 with coils)
-oxygen sensors ... $400
-double check emissions system components (BMW warranty only last til 100K) ... $300 and up
-air filter ... $20
-cabin filter ... $20

Also plan on the following repairs (again if they haven't been done already):

-Camshaft position sensors (two of 'em) ... $120 each
-fuel injectors ... $113 each new ($150 for a used set of 6 on Turner Motorsport)
-brake system (rotors, pads, lines and sensors) ... $50 and up
-secondary air pump and valve ... $300

Also wouldn't be a bad idea to have the valves adjusted and the engine tuned up. If your car has the Steptronic transmission, and it was driven poorly, you could plan on repairing the transmission as well.

Good luck with it, I love my 328i. Go buy the Bentley service manual and a code-fault reader right now. Man, I hope you got that car for well below blue-book value.
