135i extend warranties, front brakes and tail lights

Long time reader, first time poster :-)

I've got a Jan 09 135i convertible and was considering an extended warranty. A brief chat to North Shore BMW in Sydney that it's around $5000. I wonder what people's opinions are of these?

We've had the whole roof replaced by Trivett about a year ago when a hydraulic cylinder failed and it was $5K in parts, so I guess that's all good for a while. We also just had the right hand tail light fail so it needs to get that replaced (under warranty).

The other question is that the front brakes are low pads and discs. The discs squeal but given Northshore quoted $2000 for brakes and pads I've been holding out until they have to be replaced.

I gather there are OEM equivalents for both pads and discs that might be a lot cheaper. Any pointers to these and/or someone who can replace them?

Thanks
