    Which is more important to you? Warranty or modifications?

    If you don't have a warranty issue that the reflash would cause denial, there's no reason to flash back to stock. If you do, reflashing back to stock is fraud.

    I thought I read somewhere on this forum a little while ago that they can tell when you flash a car.

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    I've heard both. Cobb says they can't; people at dealerships say they can. Both have a bias...

    Either way, it's still fraud.

    I am mostly German, but that little tidbit is just a bit of hazing amongst staff (has nothing to do with my ancestry).
