Exclamation Your tune isn't so secret anymore....

We just got word today.... on 2009 and newer vehicle, any and all chipped cars will show they are chipped when you run the VIN # through VW's system. I was told VD1 will appear under the warranty key of the vehicle information. I just ran my personal cars vin and it shows "TD1" under the warranty key. I don't know if the V/T was lost in translation but lets find out.... I need a couple people to provide me me vin numbers, say 2 from chipped cars and 2 from stock ECU cars.

Lets confirm or disprove this.

Assuming he means if you have taken it in for work already. I don't think it would be possible to know if it hasn't been into the dealer. If they could that would be freaky scary.

right, but even if you avoid the dealer and then come in from something or warrany work, they may not be able to tell just by scanning it if you have a tune. All the more reason to possibly be honest (with some/most - not all) with the dealers when you go in, who knows though... thankfully, we have a good amount of mod friendly dealers in our area, but i know thats not the case for everyone.

Here in Indiana i'm hoping my VW dealer is mod friendly because the dealership next door BMW does Dinan work. If not I'll just go to Chicago for any warranty work lol. It seems the dealers there are much more willing to help me out. That is where I bought my car anyways

Possibly. Will depend on how dealers use this information...
