Yes, just connect or disconnect. Since it doesn’t rewrite (flash) the ECU it doesn’t show up on the VW/Audi computer system. No chance of the warranty being disqualified. Flashzilla, theoretically, can be detected by the computer if they check, based on the number of ECU flashes done.

Been reading up all morning. Followed your logs and also many other Chipwerke owners posts. Among the Unitronic, Kerma, and APR threads I read bedore this.

I still believe Malone is what's best for me and what I'm looking for as a whole package. Given the shop is ten minutes from my house, having professionals available if a problem were to arise seems like the best investment overall.

Most importantly, for me, smoothness across the powerband is something I truly want. Everything I read on Malones tune is how the car stays levelheaded and controlled. Where some tunes can be jittery or a bit to much "in your face"

Maybe that's why Malone tunes seem to have owners saying they don't feel the power of the tune as much as whatever other tune they are comparing it too? It's not as ferocious because it's just a bit more precise.

I hope that rings true, and my car agrees with it after completion.

As far as the extended warranty, the car is currently on it's way from the West coast. Once it arrives it's going to Audi for a check-up to make sure it's all on the up and up, but it was a one owner lease with all service records included in the Carfax from Audi. It has had the fix, if nothing shows up now, I have confidence the car will continue on reliably and even more so with the Tune.

6 long months of waiting to get this car is almost over...

Malone has a lot of satisfied customers. I’ll take a good look at getting one when my extended warranty is expired, assuming I still have the vehicle, which is indeed the plan.
