Welp...It's our last service with the Audi dealer before the warranty expires. It will probably get a quick go around and the full 40k mile service. (we just bought the car with 47k on it..and all the services were done, just not the 40k)
Would you have it done at Barrier or UVAS? I'm looking for honest opinions and experiences.

about Barrier's service dept., but take these rumors with a grain of salt. I've had my car for 33K miles and University has *usually* been great.

I just got an oil change and the 20k service done there and everything went great. Also I had them reprogram my remote so I can roll the windows up and down with the remote. They did it for free and UVAS wanted 50 bucks to do it.

I've been a customer for 7+ years. They are excellent. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else!

Anyone know if University is picky on warranty work with a "modified" car?

I'm on the Eastside and still take my A4 to RJM in Bellingham. It's just a little more than an hour's drive and they still give me a service loaner if I request one. I've run into many extremely pleased customers of theirs ...happy both with the way they were treated during the sale and after sale service.
I'm considering purchasing an allroad and will in all likelihood buy it at Roger Jobs. I had poor experiences at both Barrier and UVA's sales departments in the past but I'll still give them another chance when the time comes to buy the allroad. I doubt that they'll be able to match the price and the attention to service which I've received so far from RJM but we'll see.

They've always worked hard to ensure that I've been totally satisfied with their work.

And RJM is just too far......

Besides the fact that Brian (my salespeson) helped me wash my car, by hand, in the rain, on his day off, (sorry, I tell that story to anyone who will listen) the service people have been really good.

under any remaining factory warranty. IF (and only if) the "modified" part can be shown to be responsible for the need for repair, then you (or an "extended" warranty) will be expected to pay for the parts/work. The mere presence of "mods" will not "void" your warranty.
UVAS also told me the "mods" that give them "problems" are big wheel/ultra-low profile tires and super-hard suspensions...and the owner complains about "squeeks and rattles..."

I know - it was 3+ years ago, and I have no idea how they are now, but UVAS has only been getting better.
