Both use the same alientech powergate 3 devices and are potentially detectable by the dealer. If your warranty is of the utmost importance it would be best to leave the vehicle stock.

Are these tunes completely reversible if I needed to bring the car in for service? I thought I read the ECU tracks each flash?
Audi has always been tough on voiding warranties with tuning, if you are concerned about the warranty, I would avoid it unless you are local to us. We're able to make it undetectable but that requires bench flashing.

Very interesting development for those unhappy with the new shift points. Please let us know what the price for this service is expected to be.
