  • warranty from a Remap

    A friend of mine was asking me about a warranty on the engine an gearbox from buying a Remap from a tuners Thorney motor sport

    now this is the way I see if you go buy a 2nd hand astra VXR and pop along to Thorney Motor sport with your car 40k on the Clock car and engine was in good nick no problems on it at all
    1 year Left on the vauxhall warranty ect ect with 20k left to run

    but what he was told if be huys a Bluefin an remaps his car to stage 1 or stage 2
    he will get a warranty for 3 years or 60k ?
    on parts like the turbo and gearbox parts that vauxhall would void from the remap ?

    but I cant see how a tuners would pay out to fix
    say Gearbox goes pop due to more power then it was rated at
    £3500 for new gearbox an clutch/flywheel
    £1100 for a new Vxr Turbo fitted again built for 240bhp but being used to make 290bhp putting stress on it

    or have i missed the point on this
    £500 to cover that and they pay out or just put it all down as
    Abuse and not pay out
    the truth is out there

                  they cover your warranty untill cars 3 yr warranty up ,if it can be traced to map thorney cover it ,if not traced to map vx cover it ,as long as all work done by vx or thorney in the past,thats why i went down that route,my mate at same time had 1.8 sri had it mapped big exhaust all done at tms performance centre,and 2 months ago they replaced his gear box no problem under warranty,secret is dont touch car yourself so you have no grey area's may hurt your pocket at first but could save you a fortune later.hope this was of some help

                      if you have a tms performance centre near to you its cheaper for them to do it ,they will give you up grade to stage 3 free of charge once you bought map,and i was told they will take map off car if i want when i sell for free to ,so for me it was a no brainer and my car is great now cant recomend it enough to anyone,wish had it done day picked car up from new not 2 years down line ,so its thanks to this site that gave me the info and push to get it done ,i had the aggressive map ,cheers

                        Sorry, not here as often now really.

                        Not sure of the question? But I'll guess. Our warranty will cover the car for the full 3 years and 60k miles regardless of owner, so if you buy a second hand car and tune it you will be covered for the full three years on all the car. Wear and tear and abuse only restrictions. As for do we pay out, yes, we do. Obviously we dont want to spend millions on warranty claims as we'd rather do the job so you dont need to claim in the first place but thus far our record is excellent woth in terms of numbers of problems and where there is one our position on looking after the customer.

                        If the question (which I think I read) was that you wanted to add an after market turbo and then we map it then the answer would still be yes although as a non standard Vauxhall part we would treat its potential failure on a case by case basis.

                        OK?
