I would defo go with Litchfields as well, especially as they are the ones who service and tune my car it'll be in there own interest to make sure nothing goes wrong when I do more upgrades

My warranty runs thankfully to 24th December this year I'm sure by time thats running out more details and information will be in place.

Agree with Eandy, my warranty runs till November ish but im sure there weill be more information form litchfield's by then..

seriously a no brainer to have a litchfield's warranty esp as it will cover any upgrades from them too! Serious peace of mind and will not have to worry about them not paying out etc

oh and will be interested to hear what the stipulations form litchfield will be with regard to servicing..assuming it has to be done by them, will they allow 12 monthly servicing or make you stick to 6 monthly which is silly if you do low miles..

Sure Litchfield's offer sounds the best - but as of yet I've not had an official pricing or T&Cs from Litchfield. I'll give them a ring later to see if these are available yet.

Group buy on Litchfield warranties

Really need to know what is included. Ive got till June to make up my mind though. Middlehursts maybe an option if they will cover future mods done by themselves

You'd have to be pretty crackers surely to pay £2600 a year for warranty. Why not put the same amount in a separate bank account then you have a pot to dip into if needed but if you don't you save up a nice little stash.

Everyone seems to assume that the gearbox will fall out the day after the warranty expires.

Give Ian at Lichfields a call he's a nice chap and he will take his time to explain in detail what's covered and extras you get e.g breakdown cover and accident cover

That's good hope it stays like that but as they say "best to be safe than Sorry"

A warranty isn't for everyone. I've been pushing for the info so I can make *my* decision and hopefully make as much info to you guys so you can make *yours*

I just spoke to Iain @ Litchfield.

Iain has the T&Cs etc out with the lawyers at the mo. The basic warranty is in place, but Iain needs to consider options and wording around track days, launches etc. all of which will have understandable effect on the car. Iain's approach seemed sensible in trying to cover all of these scenarios with common sense, but as ever the wording needs to be clear. There are also a few queries outstanding with Nissan regarding cover for known issues etc.

Without committing Iain to any of this - the type warranty policy will be:

£995 price point
A 2 hour labour charge to inspect the car (Free if Litchfield do the 36 month service)
Warranty will be transferable to a new owner on sale of the car
Yearly servicing or 10,000 miles interval is acceptable
Breakdown cover included
"Sensible" track use included (detail TBC)

Iain expects the warranty T&Cs to emerge w/c 30th with booklets etc. All of this will be available on the Litchfield website too.

Based on this info it will be a simple choice for me - but I want to see the exclusions etc in black and white first. I think the HPCs will lose a whole bucket of customers.

Nissan should be responding to my original complaint today.

Cheers.

Thanks Smifffy. Did he mention anything about mods? If the car was modded with him, I think I heard he would cover the mods and the car. What if the car was modded somewhere else? Would he still be able to do a warranty but only on non-modded parts? Could be that he could do an inspection on the mod fitting etc to cover them even if not done at Litchfields? Lots of SVM 650r and other owners who might be interested in his warranty.

I've still got 11 months so not so much a problem but mine will be SVM'd by the weekend.

Sorry, should have mentioned;

Litchfield mods are covered, yes. Not sure about other mods, but Iain did say he'd announce the policy and then welcome feedback and thoughts from the community. Might be an idea to ring him and have a chat whilst the policy is being formed?

Sounds even better than before and it was already a no-brainer for me.

I'd always heard good things of Litchfield from my Impreza days but with numerous Indy Impreza dealers around with good rep never used them. Having experienced Litchfield now with the GT-R as far as I'm concerned they've exceeded my expectations for service, costings and most importantly customer care.

Even when I had a 'just got the GT-R query about someone stupid question' I was treated with respect on the phone even though it was a common sense thing really and given all the time and day to be explained things at idiot proof level for me to understand.

Well my warranty isn't out till the end of the year but sounds like it's the route I will go along with my Stage 2, 3 and 4 upgrades from them as each service comes.

The litchfield likely future warranty was the main decider for me in going for their Stage 4 over the SVM 650r route, glad i choose that way !

"Yearly servicing or 10,000 miles interval is acceptable"

That's the first time I've heard that from anywhere - I thought most of us were going to change to 9000 miles....but now it seems to be 10000

Any advance on 10?

Guy

When I spoke to Ian he told me that as long any mods were carried by his company then they would be 100% covered by his warranty so one can take it from that the mods done by other tuners wouldn't I'd imagine because surely he can't guarantee anyone else's work. Just something else, who ever I have spoken to about Lichfields I seem to hear only good feedback and after speaking to Ian myself I get the feeling he's a fair and honest bloke, so I'm gunna give him my kitten and let him turn into a tiger...lol
