Thanks for providing the info.
I am sure this is a worrying time for 'official' Ralliart UK owners especially regarding the warranty/servicing situation however, no doubt this has been discussed and their interests will be covered so people do not panic!

I think you guys are worried for no reason. There are still the same people at Ralliart and I cant imagine them telling you they do not replace something under warranty because of a name change.

You have always said on here how long it took CCC to get the official cars when Ralliart had them months before. Look at what Sam posted about his electrical problems, a lot of dealers have no idea about Evos.

Ralliart UK after their name change will try even harder since it sounds like CCC want to take over the market for Ralliart vehicles . In addition to that, I'm not sure your local CCC dealer can program an ECU or do any tuning except fit a panel air filter. Ralliart are expensive, but that's about their only drawback; I've always got lots of helpful, friendly and honest people on the phone (Jon and Toney).
