[Biturbos4] extended warranty

My dealer suggested purchasing extended coverage through them that would 
be essentially an extension of the factory warranty provisions, if I 
understood correctly.  I'll ask about the details.  I'll probably hit 4 
years before the car has 50k miles on it.  4 years of ownership will 
occur in July of next year for me.  Anyone else have details on an 
extended factory warranty through AOA?  Seems like this would be the 
most desirable if the cost is reasonable,  if you're satisfied with the 
service you've had from AOA dealers, and if you aren't in a position to 
"self-insure".  I'll try to get more info on this from Ed Carroll Motors 
in Fort Collins, Colorado.  I think they've been good to me, although I 
haven't had any major issues to this point.  Personally, I'd be 
reluctant to purchase extended coverage from anyone but AOA.  I've 
received a bunch of solicitations for over the last few months, but 
haven't checked any of them out.  Insurance is barely regulated in 
Wyoming, so many fly-by night skam companies operate here and many are 
even based here since it's one of the few states that will incorporate 
them.  Be careful out there, fellow S4 pilots.  Cheers.
