Got the letter from reno 2day stating that my own car now has one year manuf warranty, and two year dealer warranty. RESULT!!!
About a month ago, I sent in all my docs as requested PLUS, i sent a copy of the letter from reno that stated all EU imports reg after Oct 2000 (i think) qualified for the warranty upgrade (the reason i sent them back their own letter was because a) they couldnt then deny that all EU imports were covered b) saves them looking for it on their own system, had I just referred them to it.
Ian P - thanks for your help mate by sending me the original letter. It is appreciated.
Right, now Im off to get my rust fixed!
