I've asked this before, general consensus is not to bother, vanos won't be covered, better saving a bit each month for an emergency fund..

As previous poster says, dont bother

In my opinion most car warranties arent worth it, they only ever cover parts that are much less likely to fail. I've just had a fight with Volvo over whether a part should be covered under the warranty or not.

I put away a bit every month as a maintenance fund, no matter on their usage these are expensive cars to run and expensive when they need fixing.

For the MC, unless you can find a warranty that covers the usual + Vanos, Subframe (and all associated parts) and shell bearings at a reasonable price then I wouldnt bother.

I wouldn't waste your time, RAC Warranty is useless. Complete waste of time and money.
