It depends. I have found service departments vary as to what they cover, when, and how.

I could see them saying: "Hey you did not do the update, so sorry"

I could see them say: "Hey, you tuned this, so sorry"

Become buddies with the service department. My guys don't give a crap what you do to the car (to a point), they can tell if you are a d-bag ragging on it, or just an enthusiast with legitmate OEM issues. First impressions and all that.

It really is that varied. Call your dealer and start a dialog. The personal connection is THE most important part of ANY transaction wether it be cars, houses, etc.

If you are already protuned and your warranty is already shot, then don't bother with the update.

I hope that helps.
