Good deal for this price.

A very reputable company using a well respected map. As good as REVO nowadays, but better service usually!

Sigh. Way to tell half the story and generally misinform.

It cannot invalidate your warranty completely, but it can invalidate parts which are affected by it. A court precedent has been set, so it's not a big worry. For example, these remaps usually involve a fairly significant increase in boost pressure (sometimes as much as 100%) so if you apply one and your turbo breaks, then chances are it WILL NOT be covered under warranty. However, if you apply one and a damper begins to leak, chances are it WILL still be covered by your warranty and if the dealer tries to wiggle out of it, you will find it an easy argument to get them to back down.

On the insurance point. Tell your insurance company or else your insurance policy IS invalid (there is no maybe about it) and you'll be looking at an increase between 10% and 50% depending upon the company. Some companies won't insure a modified car at all, so check before you remap.

Companies that LOVE modified VAG cars are brokers like A-Plan and Greenlight, both of whom use good insurers like LV and are NOT a bunch of cowboys like Adrian Flux or your average modified car insurance broker.

HTH.
