Sorry to hear about your car mate, but I know what rip offs they are!! I bought a warranty with my EF a few year ago, $800 for 3 years, and nothing was ever covered which infuriated me. So when it came up to 3 years with my AU recently, I didn't waste my money. I really hope you can fix your car soon without too much to the hip pocket. All the best!
