    Hello from NY..first WRX

    Hey all, my name is John...I recently got a 2012 WRX hatch, its my first WRX...had a reg impreza before that(regretted not getting the WRX the first time LOL, but was still a great car) Anyway, just looking for some mods to do and get some opinions from everyone...I am confused as far as warranty issues from different mods, especially tuning...I just ordered a Cobb Exhaust today and was looking for an intake but from what I understand a tune will cause warranty claims to be denied. Anyway, just saying whats up to everyone!

    A tune COULD cause a warranty claim to be denied, only if they can prove that the increase in power caused the issue...or something along those lines.

    It all depends on the dealership where you're getting warranty work done...some dealers are more mod friendly than others.

    Just get something like an Accessport so you can revert backwards if you want to.

    They can supposedly tell that it's been "flashed" but not necessarily with what unless they were to pull the ECU and send it out...or use Open Source to view the ROM (but whens the last time a dealer used Open Source?).

    West Chester isn't too far from NJ, right? I know North Jersey has a few dealers that are ok...one vendor here is a salesman at Ramsey Subaru (rexxx0486), so hit him up with a PM and see what he says. Supposedly Bill Kolb Subaru is ok as well.

    Hello Rage, I actually had some luck with Bill Kolb as far as getting a car, they were pretty good to me as i have bought cars and recommended people in the past..as far as mods, no idea LOL...have you brought your car to Ramsey for service or had any issues?

    I see you're from YO, I'm in Greenburgh...anyplace people meet up in the area?
