Great looks. Especially those alloy wheel. They look awesome.
Just wondering Umang, whether these modification will void warranty? Not only suspension, but also for other components. It should happen that for any small problem, VW points to modifications. May be my question sound silly. If so apologies for same.

I think it will void warranty in this case as some external modifications are also done. I have seen some cars which use Pete's box on the stock cars itself , in that case i think warranty wont get void.

Re: Pete's tuned 130 BHP Volkswagen Vento!!

hi gurus how much will the petes tuning box for the vento cost? regarding the warranty if the wv dealers comes to know about the alterations its gone. i heard that the petes tuning box is simply clipped on to the engine and can be removed in minutes so that when the car goes in for servicing it can be removed.the vw dealer was even refusing to fit additional horn on to my car stating that they don't advocate such changes.

Pete’s Diesel Tuning Box comes in different variants ranging from Rs.19,000 to Rs.43,500 bucks. Although it’s kind of plug and play and easy to install (All installation details come along with the package) but remember, your warranty will be immediately void the moment any dealer comes to know about the modification. So install at your own risk, and in case you’re interested, just go ahead and shoot an E-Mail to Peter.

Drive Safe,

has any one driven a petes tuned car ? does it make a real noticeable change in the pick up of the car from a stock model. any way it won't make a difference in driving in keral where we have no much roads. we are small people who have opted for narrower highways( 45 metres only). that too when the highway authority threatened to call the road by other names than national highway, our govt was for 30 metre wide highways..
