    Warranty Question

    Hello

    2nd post on this forum so bear with me please. So I have my Audi A3 2012 black edition on its way. It has everything I want except the sat nav system. My questions is if I get an original Audi Sat-Nav system fitted by another company would it invalidate my warranty, if so to what extent? Some people say it will invalidate the whole warranty others say it will only invalidate the warranty for the electricals. Any advice appreciated

    cheers

    I am sure that I have read NHN say that he is yet to see warranty work invalidated/declined due to an OEM RNSE upgrade.

    unfortunately modding and warranties are a grey area and the only person to 100% confirm it is Audi themselves.

    logic would say that if you change the headunit and the exhaust goes wrong that there is no link (not sure where the burden of proof would lie). On the other hand if the electrics all went this could be closer linked to the head unit and the dealer could drag their feet if they really wanted to

    The other question is will they even notice /realise?

    Could a happy medium be to source the unit yourself (classifieds/ebay) and get audi to fit it?

    I have an Audi Used Car Warranty, NHN put RNS-E and bluetooth etc in it for me, I then had a couple of mechanical problems which were fixed under warranty, no problem.

    Like Andy said, they would have to prove the RNS-e is at fault for causing a problem with your exhaust.

    If things like this were not allowed, nobody would be even allowed to fit a handsfree kit or anything!

    Don't worry...

    PS - If you want an RNSe then just get in touch

    I had RNSE retro fitted in the last S3 and had loads of subsequent warranty work at AUDI without any hassle at all, including electrical gremlins.
    Although RNSE is a bit old hat these days its essential in an A3 IMO.
    Now:
    -MK2 Golf Gti 16V/VR6, Oak Green, Shrick, Intake, Decat, Kish Retrim, Lenso BSX..
    -BMW 335d Xdrive, Estoril Blue, fully loaded.

    Before:
    S3 (8P), Ibis, DSG, Milltek, SHARK

    BMW 320d M Sport
    S3 (8P), Sprint, REVO, H&R Springs, BBS CHs,

    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - REVO Stage1, Red.
    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - Std, Shadow Blue
    Civic Type `R`
    Golf MK4 GTi 18T - 200bhp, MTM ECU, Forge DV
    Golf MK3 VR6 - Cat Back
    Corrado VR6 - JAMEX
    Corrado G60 - JAMEX, BRM Charger rebuild
    etc....
