Well, brand new service manager at dealer in Alabama is actually very cool, loved my car and he was talking about how he modded his GTI quite a bit (he's late 20s I think), I went to this particular one because they had a loaner available and the previous service manager said the R was her techs favorite car to work on. <p>But the R loving tech decided he wasn't even go to try to diagnose 4C issue because I have TME springs front and rear, said it voided my warranty and they were obviously causing the issue (this before he ever even hooked it up to VIDA). I'm getting a constant "CHASSIS SETTINGS SERVICE REQUIRED" message, and it bottomed out twice pulling into a driveway.<p>Tech also told service manager that without an IPOD he couldn't diagnose whine coming from digital jukebox.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Tech said wasn't even going to try and find dash rattle...<p>Tech said that the new driveline whine I'm hearing is common on Rs...<p>SM he would have to charge me for the SUM calibration to fix headlights, since per tech that was tied to 4C issue...<p>Said that he could pull the phone and replace with a cupholder, but that I would have to pay for it. I asked him to read the TNN a little closer, I was quite sure that Volvo was paying for it. NOTE: VCNA said since my car was two years old, they weren't able to refund me any money for the Mayday telematics system that has never been used. <p>I had issues with all of the above, he agreed that the tech was probably being difficult, but he said regional rep was coming the next day, and he would settle any issues. <p>Well, regional rep said no warranty claims for 4C issues could be honored because of aftermarket springs... he didn't care that my car had 4C issues before the spring install. He actually hooked the car up to VIDA and discovered front left shock is completely hosed (constant low voltage), and rear right has intermittent hight voltage readings, but said I modified the suspension, therefore they were off the hook. He said I should have waitied until warranty was up before modifying. <p>On a positive note, SM said that he could get software from Sweden to disable my '04 DRLs, but would cost me $30 for software and $30 for install (I said fine, I'm not holding my breath that it will actually work though). <p>So, at this point, I guess I'm going to have to pull the springs, and then go to a different dealer. <p><B>So, anyone want a set of very sweet TME springs?</B> I still have too much warranty (only 20K miles) to deal with this crap. Besides, with no autobahn, no Ring, and not even any curvy roads around here, don't need really need them. <p>BTW, I don't have internet access at my house yet (new construction), turns out builder forgot to ask cable company and phone company to connect the house to their lines... no idea how long for either, so it may be a while before I can check back in again.
