What is the start date for the 3/36,000 new car warranty?

Is the start date?:

a) The delivery date
b) The date of the mandatory 1000 mile ecu dump?

Sorry for not being able to research to much on this right now (I'm at work :no:) but we need a quick answer.

Thanks everyone !!

Jeff and Pamela

Makes sense, so the first ecu dump just validates or activates it then?

Not really relevant other than the first ECU dump is required as a condition of the warranty and can be used to modify or nullify the warranty.

Think about it, the first 1000 miles may not happen until after a year of owning the car. The warranty would still be over a year old.

So then there's a database at Lotus to track warranties. I assume that the dealer submits this date to Lotus then. Can you verify that date with someone at Lotus? (I don't mean to be confusing here :) )
