The Seat extended warranty the one offered here: https://www.insurewithseat.co.uk/extended-warranty is brilliant and have used it many times. Its as close the factory warranty as you will get. I dont know how they make a profit on it, as one claim has far exceeded the payment. some examples:

My wifes Leon £162 for a year 0 excess. The alternator was making a funny noise and was replaced by Seat under the extended warranty cost would of been £200+ all in.

I had an Ibiza Cupra 1.4tsi. The warranty was £250 for a year with 0 excess, in one year it had a DSG fault which required, new mechatronics unit, new clutches and oil service. This all came to over £3k worth of work. The next year it blew a water pump which was replaced under warranty no argument.

Dsldude, strange I've got the same year and model as you and have done just over 11,000 miles, cover approx 3000 miles a year, yet I paid £292.31p.
I don't understand the £100 plus difference, especially when I've not got the extra Panoramic Roof or Virtual Pedal to go wrong.

Not sure if this helps but I too was offered and bought extended warranty on same terms as Dsidude.(£173.82)
It may not be relevant but I had wondered whether I would be eligible as I have had my Excellence serviced from new by an independent but highly regarded local VW specialist.
When collecting my car I was interested to learn that their service records and information relating to my vehicle (coming up to 10000 miles) is notified to VW/Seat.

Blimey, I put mine thru the Seat calculator and it is between £428 and £701 depending on excess.
All components, less than 10 k miles a year.

Sorry if I didn't make it clear that that the £173.82 was for a twelve month period starting when the three year manufacturers cover expired in Sept '20.I imagine a final twelve month warranty will be offered next year.

Hugie, thanks for that,
I bought mine from Lookers Honda in Orpington on 9th Sept 2019, as a used vehicle, they gave me their three months "add on warranty" after the 3 year manufacturers cover expired on 8th June 2020, so basically they sold me it with 12 months warranty.
Whilst getting near the end of the Lookers add on warranty period I tried to obtain Seat Extended Warranty, I was basically told that I couldn't take it out for 30 days, which obviously I did, so I was without any cover for quite some weeks, I can only think that the higher difference in cost I paid was because the Seat Extended Warranty did not start as soon as the original 3 years Manufacturers cover expired.

Yes I believe you have to take it out within a month of the 3 year warranty expiry to to get the lower price, will be interesting to see what they charge for year 4-5.
