Default Made the mistake of going to dealer with JB4 - 02-02-2019, 11:22 AM

Today I took my 17 jetta to the dealer for ecu recall , tire balance and alignment. Didnt think much of it, because people have said my local dealer was mod friendly. After service, Service advisor mentioned she had to put a note that states “JB4 installed. Tricks sensors for more power and will damage motor and void warranty”. I asked her about it, and she said that its just on receipt but if i go to another dealer it wouldnt show up. I told her i put close to 30k a year and ill be out of warranty by the end of the year.

Lol how screwed am i?

Chances are its just a reference note and not something permanent. Typically dealers are mod friendly to the mods they sell if they have a division that does tunes.
