Thats what I meant by they can scan for updates and flash accordingly.

that was more of joke than anything as the OEM ECU should be able to control your system up to around 600WHP or so without the need for Standalone management.

It is not cool to modify you car then lie about it to the dealer.

Honestly if your worried about Voiding your warranty dont even buy the Accessport and go stage 1. No matter how much you tell yourseld that you need your warranty and it wont go any further that stage 1 you will. Its best not to start modding at all if warranty is a concern cause once you get the modding bug,its all over.lol.Trust me i said the same thing and now im heavily modded.

No, all they have to do is say the problem was caused by abuse. It's a trump card.

Voiding a warranty and denying warranty work are not one and the same.
