As far as I know there isn't. You could consider renewing it just before you apply to get the stickers in your passport, otherwise you'll have to renew your passport in NZ and then pay to get the stickers placed into your new passport. Much cheaper to renew in the UK and you'll not have to renew the stickers in the next 2 years. You get up to 9m carried over when you renew so you wouldn't lose too much passport 'time'.

Just had a look: for a normal PP, £77.50 to renew in the UK and $335.37 to renew in NZ plus $90 to transfer the visa. Big difference!
Personally I'd leave it until the last moment and renew in the UK if you only have less than 2y remaining...
