My current warranty is with Fidelity Warranty Services. At the time the warranty was sold, it was branded as a VW REAL DRIVER warranty. My "platinum" level warranty runs out in May and/or 97K miles (I have 86K right now.) I called to see what an extension would cost...I was told I could get a 2 yr/24K mile warranty for $2300. They would not offer the higher gold plus and platinum levels due to age/mileage. This is not technically an extension but simply a new warranty. I could then cash in the value remaining on my existing warranty. If I wait until May, presumably, the quote will be a bit higher and perhaps, they may not offer a 2-yr product.

Fidelity has worked out great for me if anyone is shopping for a warranty. Only some dealers will sell Fidelity...I used the original dealer that issued the original extended warranty...that was Stohlman's VW in VA.

Since I am possibly selling my W8, I will simply offer the remaining 9 months of platinum protection to the new lucky owner. But, it is nice to know one could get another 2 years of coverage.

Dropping from Platinum to Gold does reduce the list of covered items but the big ones still remain covered.

Just thought I would post this info for anyone considering extended warranty options.
