Sorry, I may be misreading this, but where is the car?

I like washwipe went for dealer rates as my local dealer will not fit anything but a new LR engine...…..this was from practical experience some years ago Whistle Whistle


Car is at Tim Fry Landrovers Cheltenham. They seem to have a great reputation and have used them for other stuff before.

Alternative was Halfords Shocked

Having popped in on my way home, I will have to contribute the difference in rates (£10 per hour), as I only have a rate of £60 per hour on my warranty. I think I can suck that up.

I have a really difficult decision now, sell now with a 12 month engine warranty or keep.

I have just a received a PM on that very subject which I will reply to later on today.
What would you do Whistle

A great result, Phil. Thumbs Up

"What would you do?" might be a question of Warranty Direct. Yes, you have a 12 month on the re-man engine but will they cover another one outside of the 12 months? I guess it also depends on what they say about your warranty cover at the end of this term??? The cost may go up considerably or they may not even cover you!!!!

Its a good question alfa, and I did ask.

They said that I have used up ALL of my claim ability until 20 March next year, as this claim is pretty much (if not over) the value of the car.

My policy is a running monthly contract, with no end date (until the mileage limit which I dont even know what it is). So I will have continuous cover, but they may revisit the monthly cost.

I suppose the question is, do I sell now with a 12 month warranty on the engine, or keep 12 months?

Thinking about it I thought he said MWS, so most likely I misheard the N for an M.

Anyone know what NWS are like?

Oh dear.

I think OI had better check that NWS is what he said before I go getting ahead of myself.

Not
Worth
Sh*t

For your 10k claim, you can have a genuine LR lump fitted, with a 2yr unlimited mile warranty, and that's exactly what I'd be pushing for Thumbs Up
