Thanks for feedback. Will def hit up dealership about 5 year warranty issue as well as service costs, though the novated lease issue will cover me for those costs for 5 year ownership. I tried the Clio RS200 a few years ago and was impressed with EDC setup. My wife has an i30SR and I only ever drive it via this shift paddles which is very good so I don't think I'll have a prob with rs280 edc setup.
have seen just about every YouTube review on the rs280 and very impressed with the tech and quality so am ver you keen. Will know more on Tuesday after seeing my accountant and tax return
