Question Any warranty advice for a used car (GXP)

We got a Bonneville gxp and need the car cover with a great warranty. Does anybody know where I can look. what a 4-5year 50,000-100,00 miles warranty if possible.
Also don't know if its a good idea to go to a local dealer or try one of the online warranty websites like warranty-direct or auto-protection. Please give advice thanks.

Unless you are very unlucky you will be better off leaving the warranty premium in a rainy day account and making sure you keep up with maintenance.
Most warranties have get outs and holes you could drive a semi through, they are to make profits for the warranty companies, not good value IMO.
