    Wow, that's impressive, the Haldex ECU is £1200 on its own.
    Are you sure it's not just an early April fools prank?

    If u have only had it for a week, was it the manufacturers warranty that was up, and its being done under the dealers warranty?

    I should imagine it would come with 6-12 months of dealer warranty if its an approved used car.

    Good tho that they aint charging you mate!!

    Yes you normally get at least a 3 month warranty when buying from a dealer.
