Angry Extended Warrenties Suck the Big One

I'll try not to write too much here.
Here's the Reader's Digest version.

I began having problems with the my car-
detonation, stalling at idle, low idle bad gas mileage, etc, a few weeks ago. I thought it just needed a tune up, I finally took it in to the Dealer to get it fixed and was told it was a MAF failure plus the #2 plug wire had a break in it. I thought, God that sucks, good thing that I got the EXT warranty when I got the car(used and the warranty was through my credit union) then, I get a page from the Service guy, saying that the part is NOT covered under the warranty that I have.
They way my warranty works is this,-
there are several levels, bronze through platinum, and the two at the top what matters. the only and BIGGEST difference, is that the Gold only covers LISTED parts. the platinum covers parts not listed also and only has exclusions. get it?
Now here's the best part. If I had been driving the car, and a detonation caused by this MAF failure cracked or broke a valve or piston crown or something else serious? THE, WHOLE, THING, IS PHUQED. I'd basically be up the creek...which I pretty much am already!!!! so I think that, in light of this whole fiasco, and the fact that I'll be modifying the car after this rally cross season, I'll be canceling the policy. I am in no way belittling people who think that extended warranties are great, I just want you guys to READ THE FINE PRINT and know EVERY part that the car your are getting the additional coverage for, has. BEWARE of this trick of "anything that is not listed is not covered" BS. thank God I didn't get so HYPER advanced sports car(VR4 or EVO) I'd really be going postal then!

BTW, I have thought about selling my car... not that I don't love her, I just.... I think that maybe I'm too young for this car, or I don't have enough money to support my desires for her. It's not unlike having a REALLY attractive women interested in you..and I mean REALLY interested I you(sex, hanging out, likes your personality, drinks beer, likes your friends....on & on & on) but knows what Godiva chocolate is, and what Buvgari perfume is, or knows what she wants in a car(quality and elegance, reliability, not BMW or Merc,) and you end up passing on being with her because you can't provide for what she wants AND needs..... ok maybe I'm just insane. but I think that I just don't have the bank roll to truly hang where I want with this car, and I feel like, if I can't go that way I'd rather not go at all. I'd rather sit on the sidelines at a World Rally or Pro Rally, than to think I actually have any chance of being on the other side of tape while I'm young. Hell, My last name isn't Martin, or Solberg, or even Gardermiester.
I'm not from Finland, England, Australia of even Canada. Never mind.....I'm gonna go now.

bmw steel greay


your dealer if bull****in you. that happened to me one hour before i was goin to leave for carlisle. it just started stalling like crazy and detonating horribly. so i took it to the dealer and they tried givin me **** bout it ,cuz i had 36,200 miles and my warranty would of only cover it till 36k miles. so i got pissed off cuz they wanted me to pay 500.00 dollars cuz its the MAF meter, so i just yelled and screamed and they changed their mind and decided to hook me up. and the number two spark plug wire went out on me too and now it happened for a second time with the nology and ngk combo.
