Need urgent advice on warranty please!

Okay, so this is the warranty info, Gold Package that is offered to end users. The cost is USD 1062 for two years/50,000 KM, unlimited claims, max claim value is the purchase price of the car.

The car I am considering is 2005 BMW 318ci with 29,000 KM, factory warranty till Sept 2007. By that time, I expect to have about 55,000 KM on the car in time for the extended warranty.

Can you let me know what is major maintenance between 50-100,000 KM that is missing from this warranty?

Ok, beyond the two years, I can renew for another year with their Silver plan for USD 450 / 25,000 KM. So this should cover me from 100-125,000. The Silver plan details are given below. Can you advise if its worth it and what major components are missing? Or maybe two years is advisable to have warranty till 150,000 KM?
