3rd party car warranties.

Afternoon all.

My GTi is about to hit 130,000 miles and with it being a DSG, I'm starting to get a little nervous about it all. It has recently been serviced and works as it should - although there are some days when it can be a little jerky at low speeds and if I'm not changing the gears myself, a little hesitant through 1st 2nd and 3rd.

I'm pretty sure this is down to the fact that I do allot of short journeys - and the car isn't getting a proper chance of warming up and keeping warm. On the long runs I have had in it - 2-300 miles - the gearbox is smooth throughout.

So, do you think it's worth getting a 3rd party warranty? If so, is there anyone you can recommend for high mileage cover?

I've done a google search and just get the same old fill-your-name-in-and-we-will-spam-your-inbox-to-death websites, which have no intentions of selling me a warranty. The big hitters in the market - warranty direct..etc... will not cover above 100,000 miles.
