    Default Thorney Motorsport remap and Vauxhall warranty? Anyone clued up??

    Been thinking of getting a remap since I got the Veccy but I'm put off by the thought of losing my warranty!

    So after a bit of searching about I got in touch with John Thone at Thorney motorsport and he says it doesn't affect my Vauxhall warranty in any way and his work is also covered by a three year warranty.

    What I wondering is...

    Does anyone here work for Vauxhall and could comment?

    Does anyone here have experience of his work?

    If it's true your warranty is not affected does anywhere else offer this kind of Vauxhall friendly remap??

    Many thanks in advance..

    Jimbo.

    What he is saying is true mate regarding the warranty, they will run in conjunction with each other while you have manufacturer warranty, when this run's out they cover you for item's that are proven to have failed due to remap.

    DavieK, Maca, Evyboy, Voxer to name but a few who have had there VXR's mapped by them and the result's are VERY VERY good

    Don't forget you can get a BSR unit for the 2.8T as well, you can Map it or return it to standard whenever you want. You got the screen fitted yet?

    As Steven said m8, The way it works is that you get a TMS 3 years warranty from the date of Modification.

    Vauxhall have an agreement with TMS that means when your car goes into a dealer it won't matter whether it's a TMS problem of Manufacturers problem it won't cost you to repair it.

    What that means is that if you take your car in and it is found that the fault is a manufacturers cause then it will be replaced under warranty even though it is remapped and if the fault is found to be caused by TMS work then the dealer will still repair it for you and then send the bill to TMS, either way you pay nothing.

    Well the only thing that's putting me off this stage 1 remap is the massive slateing TMS is getting from other forums! I just don't know what to make of it all TBH

    On migweb they haven't got a good thing to say about it or the company. Yet today I rang a localish stealership up and they said no issues with warranty and they'd put that in writing for me

    I'm kind of in two minds now as I was thrilled at the thought of actually getting some work done that doesn't funk up my three year Vauxhall warranty. To wondering if I'm going to get stitched up by a bit of a wideboy who has managed to blag a deal with some Vauxhall dealerships.

    Oh what to make of it all.. Any off you lads with TMS upgrades had any issues at all? Or any problems with warranty work.

    ANY input is welcome and very much appreciated.

    Jimbo.

    This might help your decision mate. Steven who first mentioned TMS got his 2.0T mapped at the same time as the VXR guys. His map didn't take. I believe TMS's after sales was spot on and they sorted him straight out. On the 2.2 tuning forum they are well respected maybe just being piped at the post by Courtenay HTH.

    Yeah cheers Rushy. TBH if it was out of warranty I wouldn't think twice but I paid a whole heap of money for a new car for the joys of full manufacturer cover for any mishaps which I don't think is a bad thing on a VXR as I'd imagine the costs to be a tad high

    This is my dilemma as the thought of it all going tits up if I tried to make a claim is a tadge off putting to say the least as I deffo don't want to be the bloke in a forum horror story

    I think I might push for some written guarantee from Vauxhall and see what they say when I call there bluff if you like..

    The BSR option then could come in handy, if you even need to take the car back to the dealer then you return it to the standard map yourself, the dealer will never know.
