Yes. For the BMW extended warranty you can purchase as long as you are the original owner.
When the time comes, call several dealers and ask to speak with the finance manager. He/she will quote the warranty. You can call several dealers to get the best price. You can also opt for the extended maintenance.
The advantage to buying now rather than later is the cost goes up with inflation. If you buy and sell/trade the car in, you will get the warranty money back as long as the car is under 4 yr/50k miles.
I advise waiting until the end. If the car proves to be a good one, you may never use the warranty during the last two years.
