The factory warranty's about to run out on the Clio, so we're in the same boat. We bought the Renault Harmony warranty last time around, but while it's comprehensive, it does seem a little overpriced for what it is.

When this was discussed a while back, someone (Vass, I think) mentioned these people. :: Warranty Works we supply Car Warranties at trade prices ::
They're certainly cheaper than Renault, and the only significant conditions seem to be that the repairs can't exceed the value of the car (sensible) and the warranty doesn't cover consumables (but then I've yet to see one that did.)

Bear in mind that even extended warranties tend to be mileage capped too. You're going to need to go for one with a fairly high cap, and that's going to bump the price up.
Apologies for girth.
Oi! Stop that now!
