LOL - I've come out ahead with the extended warranty on the SLK UK side, and at least broke even on the '350 stateside. C Series was completely trouble free, so lost on that one.
Two seat bases on the '55 UK side at 3000gbp each, one rear sway bar link (7gpb part, 300 gbp labor!?), and the obligatory M113 valve cover seep fix more than made it worthwhile.
The '350 stateside cooked the HK AGW about 11 months in, and the dealer decided that my opinion didn't matter, so replaced the COMAND head first, and then the AGW second - gotta love milking MB corporate! :-)
Honestly - none of the above truly justified the extended coverage, but having it let me have MB fix things I'd have done myself otherwise - with the possible exception of the seat heaters, where I'm sure I would have eventually managed a repair myself.
