Extended maintenance math?

I have a 2009 BMW 335i Coupe with CPO to 10/25/14 (or 100,000 miles), premium and sport packages, automatic transmission, and 43,000 miles on the clock. The new vehicle warranty - and with it the free maintenance program - expires on 10/25 this year and will cost me $2,095 to extend to the end of the CPO period/mileage. Apart from two or three more oil changes ($125 + tax at my local dealer), I'm told that'd also cover two major services at 60,000 and 90,000 miles (about $650 + tax) plus other potentially expensive maintenance such as for brake pad replacement ($800 or more + tax?), as well as wiper inserts and engine drive belts.
I've been driving about 14,500 miles/year, so unless that increases dramatically I won't reach the 90k miles service interval before the 12/2014 expiration date. And my brake linings are currently about 8mm both front wheels and 7mm both rears. Is that $2,095 worth it? The math seems to indicate it'll be a close call either way, so I'd really appreciate any advice and counsel before I consider calling the dealer with credit card in hand. Thanks much.

Its not worth it. The brake pad replacement only happens once, so you could get it for free before the warranty expires, but as for the rest of it i wouldnt spend the money extending the warranty. I believe in paying to fix things that break, not paying money hopeing they dont.
