I'm in the middle of my 30-day trial with my Bel STi and so far so good. My question is I plan on getting an Escort 8500 X50 Blue for a gift for someone and I noticed that they offer an extended warranty for the 8500 and the STi for $30. Is it really worth getting it? If so, I would pay the $60 and get it for both of them (X50 and STi). I really take care of my stuff and my cousin does as well (he'll be receiving the X50) and the only reason I can think of to get the extended warranty would be for software upgrades and "tune-ups" after the 1 year included warranty unless if Belscort does it for free if you purchase it directly from them. I really have no idea and I'm just wondering what you guys did an if it's even worth it. Thanks a lot!!!
