Apartment living sucks, mine doesn't even allow self-washing in the lot....Anyone knows of any touchless wash in the Troy/Rochester area?

There is BP gas station on corner of Big Beaver and Crooks that has touchless wash

Just a question from a new owner's perspective, where do you guys take your car for service? I haven't had one yet and I am just planning to go to where I got the car(Suburban Troy) since its minutes away from my work. I just want to know how is the service there and if they are typically upfront about stuff? What other dealership in the area do you guys had good(or bad) experiences with?

Was just at Suburban in Farmington Hills yesterday for my 10k too, LOL

I've always taken my cars there since it's the closest to me, but they just f-ed me over last year and the VW rep. didn't like my downpipe (thought I was tuned) and they voided the engine warranty on my car. Also noted it under my VIN number in VW's system too...so if I go to any dealer it pops on their screen with 4 things (chip tuning, engine modification, exhaust changed, gearset change).
Not cool
Only if something happens to the engine...then I might have issues. The rest of the warranty is intact though

Fox VW in Rochester Hills is a nice & "mod friendly" dealer
I think Thayer VW in Livonia is somewhat mod friendly too

I went to Sub in Troy yesterday to find out more details about my NSD Tire/Wheel coverage before I set about buying new tires and the sales manager actually started talking about chipping cars(not chipped yet) and mentioned that in most cases they could not careless about chipping....though he is sales so I take it with a grain of salt.

Like you said...take that with a HUGE grain of salt

It was a VW rep. (a guy straight from VW) that was a douche and didn't like my car apparently

I had my Stage 2+ GTI with waaay more mods in there all the time and never had an issue until that d-bag showed up


So they probably don't care....but apparently a guy from VW did, lol

Bought it from Sub in FH.

Kinda pissed I ended up getting that wheel and tire package because I'm somewhat itching to get different rims.
