When tuning new vehicles the dealership most of the time can detect this if they are looking for it.
This mean that they will not offer any warranty when there is an issue with the car.
The extend of how far this can go depends on the situation and type of damage.
But any type of engine damage will usually not be covered by them anymore.
For this reason we offer tuning insurances, which partially takes over this warranty.
This insurance will cover a wide range of problems but not all. But in the end if something brakes you are not forced to pay the whole repair yourself.
For an exact price on this you can ask us for a quote.
All of our own vehicles use this for the reason explained above.
When letting the dealership service you tuned vehicles you often run the risk of losing your tuning.
This happens when the dealership updates the ECU and TCU which flashes the these units back to factory spec. Which means it will be back to stock performance.
As a result you will have to go back to your tuner to have them flash the tune back into your cars ECU/TCU which often means paying for the tuning again.
Some dealerships sometimes also refuse to service the vehicle due to certain changes made to it. Body kit, suspension, air-ride to name a few.
