    should I tell the dealer

    my cars going in for some warranty work and whilst its there I'm going to get them to have a look at the running problems I'm getting but should I tell them its chipped incase they revert it back to standard trying to sort the problem.

    I don't want to tell them as the cars still in warranty but I don't want them undoing any work, what do you think

    Wouldn't tell them [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    So far as I know they'd have to change the ECU to undo it. Sure there's more opinion waiting though!

    Unless they replace your ECU unit, your chip will still be there.

    Unplugging the ECU or disconnecting the battery will have no ill effects!

    do not tell me, most dealers get really funny about it
