help would you buy this? i just did!

Hello all so i know its to late if the purchase is done lol but just want some piece of mind. Well last sunday i wrecked my 2010 red e82 beautiful car loved her it was a sad stupid day. Anyways i needed to find a new car asap and i also wanted a bigger car so i just bought a 2010 335i sedan blue water metallic m sport package with m wheels and all for 11.7k plus 24k warranty for extra 2 grand so im 14k all in..heres the kicker 106k miles on the clock! I know scary but picked her up from a minicooper dealer with bmw full inspection and it was serviced by bmw dealers every 2700miles ever since its first inspection. They just recieved it via trade in so theyre detailing and doing front control arm bushings, alignment and a few other minor things. Turbos or hpfp havent been changed but judging from service record i doubt the turbos have ever been on anything higher then stock boost. I plan to beat the shit out of it so i figured 2k for 24k warranty miles on a 100k 335i is cheaper then just the turbos alone so why not. The car is beautiful and i loved it

BUT WOULD YOU HAVE MADE THIS DEAL ?
IF SO WITH OR WITH OUT THE 24K WARRANTY?
IF NOT, WHY?

If you're asking, "would you buy a 7y/o turboed BMW with over 100k miles with the intent to beat the hell out of it"... I'd say No. If you planned to be nice to it, and more importantly NOT tune it. Then I think you'd be fine. If you tune it, that warranty will likely be voided. And I suggest you very carefully comb through that warranty to see if things like the turbos are even covered, that's not very common.

Just re-read my post and I guess I didn't really answer the "why" part so here goes... I wouldn't make the above choice because with a car of that age and mileage, you're already looking at needing some heavy maintenance. Add turbos to the mix and it's another beast entirely. Then, if you're going to rag on the thing like you stole it, you're putting immense stresses on old/worn parts. Something will break, and it will likely be expensive to fix.

Usually I'm all for getting a good deal, even if it's slightly higher mileage (I bought mine with 80k) but an N54 is the last engine I'd do that with - ESPECIALLY with stock turbos.
