    Should i remove the spacers before Audi see the car?!

    Ladies and gentlemen.... I will soon be taking my car in to Audi for them to have a look at a bit of a niggle which has developed. This is nothing to do with the wheels, shocks, suspension etc BUT since it was last in for it's first service i have fitted spacers front and rear (10mm front, 15mm rear).

    My question is... Is it a good idea to take the spacers off before taking the car in to Audi? If they notice them, will it void my warranty? And worse case scenario could they simply wash their hands of the car?

    I have no idea ho seriously Audi take mods like this so a bit of advice would be appreciated!

    Cheers.

    Paul.

    It depends on what is wrong with the car, if something related to the spacers like wheel bearing, suspension etc then they could turn round and they won't cover the problem

    otherwise you'll be fine

    Indeed, if your problem is related to anything to do with spacers then take them off. If it is an air con problem then its nothing to do with spacers and you'll be fine. They won't even notice, never notice mine being lowered or other mods.
