    5yr warranty and service plan worth it?

    will be looking to keep a a new audi for at least 5yr , so thinking if the 5yr warranty extension at £500 or so is worth it along with a service plan? usually if anything did go wrong , and sods law, it will cost a blooming fortune so maybe its good value? might try and get them to include it in the deal !!

    anyone ever gone for extended warranty and service plan? , depends on how long you keep it but i reckon will easily pay for itself if something goes and also good if decide to sell it on..

    thoughts?

    Lots of tech in the car, pop up screen etc.

    I'm getting the car on a 4 year PCP so 4 year warranty was a must for me.

    Yeah £500 for extra 2 years, seems worth it to me, but ask if the warranty is the same audi 3 yr version or aftermarket slightly less comprehensive version.

    With the 5 year warranty, do you have to take this out at collection time, or can you buy it at any time within the 1st 3 years of the original warranty?

    I assume the former, but may be wrong.

    The website says only available on ordering when buying, and I think will transfer to new owner when you sell IF you buy another Audi so may add a little value when trading in, if am am reading it right. So good value if you keep the car, but of you sell it before the extended warrantee kicks in, may be worthless if you buy a different make. Clever by Audi !

    Just to be clear - I don't think it's a requirement of the PCP contact. I just wanted it when I know I'll be keeping the car beyond 3 years.

    Yeh, same - I would want to remain under warranty while I was financially tied to the car.

    I asked this question, and was told it is as comprehensive as the first three years. It also comes with the additional two years Audi assist. (Five years in total)

    I got told by the dealer that you have to order the warranty extention by the time they fix your build week as its a factory option??! Its a note in the car's file not a sat-nav!Anyway whilst this might apply to the warranty, does this apply to the service plan? I might/might not get this, depending on what price I manage to get for my own car if I manage to sell it. Or would I be able to add this when I pick the car up?
