Can anyone recomend a good place to buy an extended warranty with good coverage(bumper-to-bumper prefered) at a fairly decent price?

warranty direct seems to be among the most popular. They know all about the RMS leak and cover it. Not cheap though. For three years of bumper to bumper I was quoted about a grand a year for three years with 30% due up front and the balance due within 10 months. Think the rates have gone up recently.
Do a search on Rennlist in the 996 forum. you should get some other companies.

You can also try AAA.

They have great rates on most cars from what I've seen. Unforunately I don't have any solid numbers on the boxster.

I have been doing some research on extended warranties, and I'll be going with Warranty Direct (7 years - 100k miles). Haven't decided on the $50, $100, or $200 deductible. Cost will be $2500, $2300, or $2000, respectively.

I bought extended warranty with Warranty Direct in December of last year (Major care package, no deductible $2,400)
Last week my turn signal switch broke, which is covered :-)
Warranty direct paid the $440 = $186 parts + labor
So after 2 months I already recovered about 1/5th of the costs and have still almost 4 years / 69k miles left on it.
I have the feeling that this was a good decision...
