For the W204 Id skip it. Especially for a 2014 that is the last model year with most things sorted out in the w204 chassis. If it was a MB with airmatic suspension (like my CLS55 which I should have gotten something because previous owner wasnt really on top of maintenance) Id think differently. But the w204 c63 is an excellent and reliable car if you maintain it well, which I assume you do.

I guess you're feeling lucky? Then go on and roll those dice. Good luck!
Life/health Insurance is basically a losing proposition too. Put your periodic contribution into US index. The expectancy is that youll come out way ahead.

... unless you die young or get cancer. <---- fixed it for you.

I don't know but for $5,000 I got a 5/60 extension on BOTH my 2014 C63 AND my wife's 2015 C300 4matic. I'll keep the squad here posted on how it all plays out but I feel pretty comfortable that if I put $5,000 in an index fund today, It would be long gone by 2024. Just my .02 cents.

Or get sick. Or need surgery.
