996 extended warrantee: Worth it?


New member
9 Oct 2003
Hello folks,

My C2 Cab is coming up to 2 years old soon, with 12 miles on the clock. I priced an extended warrantee at around £750 for one year. Seems expensive to me, absolutely nothing has gone wrong with the car in this time (yes, i am touching wood :) ). Is the price negotiable, or does anyone think I would be mad not to go for it?

Thank you kindly.

never say never !

although only 12 miles on the clock ! so what have you been doing with it for the last 2 years after you drove it home from the dealer ! back once for a service ? :p

Total waste of money! All the bits that failed on my car (DMF, Clutch, RMS, silencer boxes, relay, radio, front disc rotors) are not covered under the warranty.

Doh! Back after the weekend to find a typo! Of course I mean 12k, did you think I pushed it everywhere? :)

The 996 engine failure thread did get me thinking though.
