Hey i have heard many different answers to this question, but does getting an ECU re programmer, such as one from APR, void the warranty in any way? also will getting a blowoff valve, diverter valve, or short ram void the warranty either?

PLEASE ANSWER!!!

Search function is very usefull

Short answer:

If you have to ask then yes it does void the warranty.

If it causes something to break/malfuntion it won't be covered under warranty

The stealerships will want to claim warranty for you whenever possible, in order to charge VW the highest labor costs they can get away with, so generally they are on your side when making a warranty claim. VW might make the mods an issue though...

A chip will void the warranty, but the ones from apr are not detectable so long as you have it running on the stock ecu program when you take it in, or so apr says.
