Personally I'd be very wary.
Hmmmm...they mentioned they could sell me a warranty through a third party (warrantywise).

Such kindness and generosity I have never seen before... wonder who he sold it to in the end ?.

There you go then - I'm sure they will be making some commission on that warranty but if they sell the car though their business then they have to offer a free warranty by law anyhow.
