      TD1 and denying throttle body claim

      Well for some reason my dealership called today because Audi USA is denying my claim for a new throttle body after the techs put in to replace it saying it was bad. I've had a DV and ECU Relay...

      Not sure if this was posted somewhere already (don't check the forums too often) but got this letter today.

      Essentially there a misfire that can occur and trigger an MIL. Audi is extending the...

      I went stage 1 and had issues with the ECU relay going bad. I heard benched ECUs can have this problem. It's not an installer issue. Audi fixed it (under warranty I might add as the tune wasn't...

      Sounds reasonable. There's more to it than just yanking off the turbo.

      A day turn around is pretty good. I've seen 2-3 day installs/tuning and no one balks at that either.

      That's a decent dealership then. I guess we should differentiate between warranty work and backing up their install skill set. Just be careful would be my only warning. No way VW would back this as a...
