apparent "sliding/ decreasing coverage" issue became a non-issue today (before any opportunity to discuss the matter with SA or upper ups)
jittery speedo needle was sourced to a bad speedo cable= covered under Starmark
had aux fan operation checked too, OK per SA- within spec- on at 105-110 degrees
...interesting happening on retrospect, appears that the shop may have been trying to "manage" Starmark warranty claims (I still have until 11/27/01 till expiration on the E320 Coupe and a full 34 mos remaining on the E500)
