I'm out of warranty on my M5 and I got SUPER concerned when the transmission red cog of ***** appeared for the first 10 seconds today. Is there anything I can do to stave off any impending doom? Should I be worried?

Do the SMG reset and see if it comes on again or not. If not that you should be fine. Dun stress too much.

mines done that once in m-mode__brought to dealer they did every possible check on vehicle, came back with a clean bill of health, not happened since..and as per the warranty being up, extending it would def. be piece of mind.

What are my options on an extended warranty? It currently has 57k miles and I bought it as a Certufued preowned.
Certufued preowned cars have a limited BMW warranty for an extra 2 years (after the original 4 year warranty period ends) or 100,000 miles whichever comes first, so you should be covered by BMW (depending on what is causing the red cog, because the CPO warranty has some exclusions)...
