    theis warranty seems to cover everything,

    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    Get a quote on their "Build your own" warranty mate. You can select what you want cover for and you can usually claim the next day They'll usually ring you () a bit later and ask why you didnt purchase online, tell um it was dearer than expected and they'll normally offer you a "special deal"

    Only stipulation is the car must have been serviced within the last year and you must then follow manufacturers servicing guidelines but this is pretty standard on most warranties...

    ah right gotcha. Theres so much that can be worked into "Wear and tear" though. But certainly £27 a month isnt bad at all, if yer gunna get a warranty dont pay for what you dont need though, ie dont just buy the cheapest coz its a cheap warranty. You wanna be covered for the mos likely of faults. Id seriously advise looking into the build yer own jobbie.
    Also a warranty is a great selling point should you wish to sell the car

    can you claim for wear and tear after 90 days? That seems a good price. Is there a limit on the age of car/mileage?
    I bought a warrenty with my car that cost just over £300 for a year and can't claim for wear and tear at anytime. Already saved me £150 though as the Boost control valve broke the day i picked it up

    i have been looking around for a while, difficult to determine what wear and tear is though

    There are so many things that could fall into "Wear and Tear". For example, if a cambelt snaps and its 40k miles old it could be classed as wear and tear. Try ringing them and asking them.
    I didnt realise it was the gold cover mate. Good price!

    Buckle: The car must be under 10 yrs old and done less than 100k. The more miles and the older the car the higher the price and the less cover they offer But theres always their build yer own but it still must be under 10yrs\100k. Also the car must have been serviced within the last year and servicing must then be done at regular intervals...

    Warranty Direct rate the Mk4 Astra at 36 out of 200 odd, so it's up with the best Japanese for reliability - it's the best Vauxhall by a long way.

    It's just insurance, great if you claim, waste of money if you don't. You do need servicing invoices, they don't cover "wear and tear" so check out the exclusions BEFORE you buy.
