Im on my iPhone and I have no clue how to post a picture here but best bet would be to call whoever sold you the warranty and ask them.

luckily i have another fun car to fall back on in case m5 gets sidelined due to parts shortage or price jacking.

My 30 year old Porsche has plenty of used and new parts available and never an instance of price jacking

You're absolutely right. My old plan was 36months / 30k miles from 41k to 71k. I am however at 65k miles (06MY) - they have covered over $18,000 with $100 desuctible in the past 2 years. Also, old plan cost $3800 ($161 a month). The reason why I got another plan from Carchex is because the first warranty plan is done paying out for claims - they only pay for up to 80% of the value of the vehicle and of course they lower the value of the cars (they do not use nada or kbb) so they don't have to pay much. In case my engine blew up - I want to make sure I am covered. Also, I tried for my warranty to do my rod bearings and they said they do not cover preventative maintenance.
