Do you really class that as abuse? Do you feel abused ?
You say that, but they seem to have with the Nogaro edition RS6.
The warranty with ABT is through there own warranty company I believe , but they’re close enough with Audi that it can all be done through your local dealership.
All that could be wrong, but it’s basically the summary of what I can find on the net.
From the rules of this very forum:

I think the bit in bold is spot on.
Go away u ******** I’ve come to the conclusion that most people on this forum are stuck up****** with more money than sense. I think the bit in bold is spot on !
Turning a blind eye! What school of business does that come from? Seriously, do you really think that’s how a dealer operates?
Well I stand corrected then.Actually I do, as I have worked at Audi dealership in the past and have driven remaped cars, that were mapped by the dealer themselves. You may or may not be surprised with the tricks & stunts they pull. If it's going to make them a profit the then ethics kind of go out the window...
From my discussions with ABT Aust., the tune box warranty is handled by their warranty as long as the install was done by ABT/their agent/Audi dealer.The warranty with ABT is through there own warranty company I believe, but they’re close enough with Audi that it can all be done through your local dealership.
By still maintaining factory warranty with a dealer installed ABT tune box, to me that is Audi confirming their drivetrains will accept a tune box without any significant increase in stress.These engines would be built to comfortably accept a certain power increase, I would call 20% reasonable. If one does not thrash the ring out of it then, if it suffers a failure, that to me is a faulty workmanship scenario and would occur with or without a tune box.
There's a big difference between the ABT piggy-back and the simpler/cheaper ones which just tap into 2 or 3 signal lines to "fool" the existing ECU. In ABT's case they effectively piggy-back their own ECU over the existing ECU so that it actually takes whole engine control functions away from it. So its technically a far better solution which is why they have TUV approval and also provide engine warranty.
I have edited the post and gave the member gardening leave, please attack the argument not the person or you will find that you are unable to post.
Indeed thanks, not sure why this needed to go from a good debate with interesting contributions, to a personal attack.Thank you for that, much appreciated. I guess different people have different levels of respect, consideration and empathy.
