    Hi , i'm thinking of taking out additional 1 or 2 year Audi warranty , the cost of the 1 year is £200 odd pounds and the 2 year £500 odd pounds . I suppose if you make a claim it is good and if you don't it is bad ! Has anyone any experience of this - what does it cover ? What are your opinions - go for it or leave it alone ? Cheers .

    Compare the price against other third party warranties and it looks ok value.you are paying a bit of a premium for walking into your audi garage and getting stuff fixed without any hassle

    All comes down to the mileage on car, the age, the engine type, for me thats a good price & if its an audi warranty, then they're usually fairly good tbh, £200 odd a year is nothing, but is this the same level as the original 3yr one?

    Thanks guy's ,
    i thought it sounded fairly good value . As this will be my first Audi i dare say it wouldn't take too much too clock up £500 odd a 3/5 year Audi . I was a little unsure as to how comprehensive the warranty would be - any ideas what exactly it covers , thanks ?

    This is for an A3 sportback , but i believe this covers all A3/S3 models . The only thing is i think this needs to be taken out when you buy the car new and can't be added on after , but i stand to be corrected .

    I think the OP is talking about new car warranty extensions.

    I think the pricing is great VFM when you consider to extend by a year on a normal 3 year warranty is ~£700. The question of whether YOU will actually benefit is the important point in my mind and can only think of one situation when you wont, i.e. p/x into a dealer/trader. If you keep it beyond 3 years you win and if you sell private - to my mind - having a full Audi extended warranty is a massive plus.
