    Warranty Direct??

    Just had a quote from Warranty Direct for my A3 1.8 T Sport 2001 with 20,000 miles on clock for Ł225 less Ł20 if I take policy out by 1st May. Has anyone had any dealings with them? Are they ok if you do need to claim or a nightmare? The cover sounds very good but not having done this before would appreciate any views claims you have encountered with them?

    Also check out the excess amount as some cheaper quotes sometimes have higher excess charges.

    Sorry to crash, but who is considered the best non Audi warranty provider?

    Re: Warranty Direct??

    Curious about these guys as well , they have quoted me for my 2002 1.8T Sport and even when I went for the servicing by an Audi dealer they were still very very competitive.

    Excess was set at Ł25 which I thought was good seeing as that wont get you 30 mins of labour or a "free" cup of tea at a stealers.

    Gold cover seems to be very comprehensive , will make an enquiry at Audi about their warranty prices but reckon it will be double what I have been quoted.

    Anybody had to claim from them yet ?

    Re: Warranty Direct??

    Hi M8, I contacted my local stealer John [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] Fox and was quoted Ł881 for a 99 S reg 1.8T Sport that has done about 87k. The sales guy was very abrupt and didnt want to discuss anything further.... I have had a quote from the AA which was about Ł56 !!!! Give em a try - the excess is about Ł50 I think.

    Cheers Simon

    Ł56 from the AA sounds too good too be true and you know what they say......... surely someone will have had to make a claim from warranty direct or maybe Audi's are just so reliable!!!!!! will make some more enquiries and see where they go

    I made a claim for a new radiator on my Corrado with them about 5yrs ago - they squirmed, I pushed my luck - I was quite happy in the end (obviously they don't cover for stone damage - but then what constitutes stone damage).
