Shane, aka dubvinci, is a tech @ JE(PTIB), hopefully he will chime in here shortly. He may be able to help you as well.
Tina has been a VW Service advisor for many, many years and is not new to modded cars, she is normally really cool and uses common sense. Chaz is an enthusiast and treats your car with respect.
Obviously Gunther will not foot some crazy bill due to a mod, but they aren't out to **** you like other dealers. I love pulling into service everyone comes out and we always chat about modding.

I'm going to fly up to ATL to pick up the car when it's done. Maybe arrange a mini dub meet @ Gunther to celebrate the return of the Red Rocket to the streets! Lol.
Installed 1.5" body lift on the cummins tj I can now fit AC lines around the turbine housing
Had I not done this I would have had to modified the firewall and evaporator connections, I also now have more room for the compressor. Just need to modify the reciever dryer and figure out lines.
Also installed the new head unit and speakers, mocked up where I want to put the boost/egt gauge and sirius module (although that is back burner for now). And I removed all the roll bar padding to clean and paint it.. now done and reinstalled.
Started installing a bunch of sound deadening to try and make it more pleasant on the highway since I want to use it for camping and long trips.
mk2 vr6 swap is up for sale (need this gone)
80 caddy also probably up for sale (will only go for right monies)
Pm me about either if interested.
mod friendly to an extent at our dealer...as slow as we have been we arent looking to turn away work on a car just because you have lowered it...lol...but if you go thrashing around and it tears something up other that just a part failing, JE wont put their neck on the line and pay for your repairs...haha...im one for fighting for a customer sake when it comes to a bad design and crappy made parts, but not if you wanna take your car and beat on it past what its capable of and want someone else to foot the bill...and its easy to tell the difference...buying a stock car and beating the crap out of it isnt a smart idea...if its an r32, building a car to race/track/beat on is alot cheaper and more capable of not tearing stuff up than on a stock drivetrain...lol...just my .02..i dont know what mods you have but if it were me, i wouldnt be paying that much for a car and treating it like a racecar and not expect to have to fix some stuff....spend 15k on building a track car, 5k on a daily, and still have 15k in the bank over a stock r32....
Finishing these up for my jetta. About to be a sub 2k lbs car and 50 / 50 weight dist. Doing the metal rebars but later date. Did the front and rear bumpers and arches for now and widened the front arches for the 245 R6's. Dailying on 225 NTO1's now.
