    With a remap alone it will probably depend if the guy who inspects it does any checks on the ECU. They can tell if it's been altered which technically can invalidate your warranty so it's hit and miss. If the DPF has been removed then it's one more think they can pick up on and another excuse they can use to not pay for new injectors if necessary. I've read threads with people being refused work under warranty for not having FMDSH, but also read threads where people have modded cars and have no dealer SH and still get work done under warranty...

    Best thing to do it keep schtum and see what they say... you never know you can may not be affected by the recall

    Is this for a 2.0 TDI? Just a heads up, there's a new ECU update thats meant to be applied when the injectors are done although a lot of dealers aren't aware of it so you may be alright.
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....
