Exclamation Extended warranty dilemma!!!

Hi all - just bought an Espace 2005 (54) 2.2DCi Expression Auto (with 25,000 miles), and had a 1 year extended warranty (Supreme cover, top one) with no excess, but only 1000 single claim limit, thrown in from private dealer.

They say it will cost me 100 to up claim limit to 1500 for 1 year, and another of 150 (250 in total) to extend this to 2 years.

I'm a bit worried that this might not cover the cost of say repairing the old sticky EGR valve problem, which causes damage to turbo /engine on this model, and am thinking of paying 800 to have Renaults own 2 year extended warranty.

Does anybody know the sort of costs that can be involved in a worst case scenario for fixing some of the typical problems with this Espace ... or any general advice on extended warranties, especially Renaults?
