    I have read on here that MTM maps are covered under warranty, is this on a dealership level only or do AUDI honour their warranty?

    Also, do they give big gains and how much are they these days?

    cheers

    £600 (down from £1000 when I bought mine in 2007).

    Dealers say its covered, basically dealers like Glasgow Audi will sell you an MTM mapped car and turn a blind eye. If anything serious went wrong you'd still be ****tered.

    To be honest if you go with any reputable mapping company they can sort 'things' out if things go Pete Tong so you can return to dealers without egg on your chops.

    Paul,

    Ive just sent you an email as it maybe worth having a word with H about the warranty implications, as a lot of it depends on what the dealer decides to see, or not see ;)

    Some tuners also offer a supplement warranty, so if Audi won't carry out repairs under warranty because they smell a remap then the tuner will fix it for you. How well, I don't know, but they will "fix" it.

    Speak to your dealer mate. I've gone for MTM and officially, they can't. But they will look after you. I was open with my dealership and told them I was going MTM and also mentioned that Glasgow Audi offer warranty and if they could do they same and they said yes in the end.
