Unless you declined to pay for it when new you should have a 3rd year left yet

Appreciate this was a couple of weeks ago, but my 2p:

The OPC warranty is around £1200 for one year and £1900 for 2 years. You also need to pay for the 111 point check if your warranty has ended (another few hundred quid).

There's tonnes to consider - including how your car feels right now, and how it's performed since you got it. A lemon of a car could conceivably claim 5 figures over a couple of years - especially for niggly electrical things that the 991 is known for having issues with. Those end up needing repeat investigations and trial'n'error fixes. For a well built and looked after 991, you could lose your ~2k warranty cost with nothing to claim for.

A major consideration will be resale. If you have OPC warranty on your car when you come to sell, you will get a lot more attention, and possibly a little extra cash because it has the warranty. It gives the prospective owner piece of mind, and allows them to extend at their leisure; without paying for any checks, or having to rectify issues in order to get it on a scheme. I say this as a recent 991 shopper.

My final point is moot however, if you're just going to trade it in for a 991.2 down the line.
