Default Warranty expiring, what to do?

I have a 2015 Macan Turbo with almost 32K Miles, warranty expires in June. The Stealer sells one, but wants me to do service there. I try to do my own service. What are you guys doing? Is there an aftermarket that's better/cheaper? If thread is in the wrong section, please move it. Thanks!

My BMW warranty expired 15 months ago. It was very liberating.
Buying an extended? I'm sure your dealer has one. But read the fine print ...
I don't think it says you must perform all services there. I'm sure your dealer would like you do all services there.
Stealership oil change is 500 bucks. Indy is 200, ten oil changes is 3ooo dollars difference. That would pay for a lot of repairs and parts.
Zimmerman rotors for my "S", an OEM supplier are 105 bucks ea on my desk. A Porsche part number? I don't need that.
As cars and technology changes, parts get cheaper, and used parts appear. This could be your golden years of motoring....

I did nothing.

A few weeks ago there was a member on this forum, who has extended warranty that doesn't cover an oil leak. Still waiting for the details.

The only one I'd get is Fidelity (Platinum). Porsche guys speak highly and have used it a lot with great results. Like a CPO with a small deductible.

Last summer I bought an extended 6 year plan. I'm NOT the type of worry wart who would buy an extended warranty, but I had a PDK replacement just before my CPO was up (something I was pushing to do because it made a specific clattering when it was very cold, but otherwise worked perfectly) which actually made me feel comfortable NOT getting an extended warranty, but the price drew me in. $3,700 for 6 year coverage seemed reasonable to me for a 911 (I worked some negotiating magic and found the right broker).

I really don't understand this obsession with extended warranties. When did that become a thing? I've had my Porsches for years outside of warranty. Its pretty well known that that the only people who benefit from them are the insurance companies. They are not in business to lose money.

Really, when did this become a thing? Take the money you would have used to pay for it, earn interest. If there are no problems, you make money. If there are, you have the money. My suspicions are that people actually borrow the money to buy the insurance. But thats just a guess.

I see the point grim.

I make the same argument when buying a car....cash or borrow?
Cars are a depreciating asset.... wrong place for cash - IMO

My current purchase in Jan was 4.1% ... I can beat that ROI all day long.

The other thing I did was put the car in my daughter's name... and I pay her monthlies.
She is saving to buy a house and needs a credit rating.

I mean, my inherent nature agrees with this. The only reason I got one was because my PDK had just been replaced which spooked me a bit (also made me feel like I had one LESS reason to get a warranty), and because one trans or engine can be over $20K. Also because I felt $3,700 for 6 years is very reasonable. If I don’t use it once, sure, money wasted, but within “reason.” I also had to buy my car cash since I flew across country on a whim to buy it private party, so I already have a bunch of money tied in it. What’s a few K more? 😑
