Does iDRIVE void my warranty?
Great question, we’re glad you’re thinking of the longevity of your vehicle. Typically, any modification you perform to your car (including wheel & tyre changes) has the potential to void that part of your warranty if it can be proven that the modification caused a fault. in 6 years since we launched iDRIVE into Australasia, We’re not aware of any situation where this has been the case.
Should I remove the iDRIVE when I get it serviced?
No. To be honest, many dealers in New Zealand and Australia sell, install or recommend iDRIVE. Still others incorrectly see it as a ‘Boost Controller’ It’s nothing of the sort.
Is iDRIVE safer than a remap or tune?
We believe so, yes! iDRIVE does not infringe on Factory ECU mappings, so is very unlikely to cause any issue. Remapping whilst effective, relies heavily on the providers skill set. There have been issues too, with remapping voiding engine warranties even when they may or may not have caused an engine related issue.
Does it just work on Automatics?
iDRIVE is equally at home on Automatics and Manual transmissions. There are settings on each unit that can change the programming of iDRIVE to suit the transmission type in the car.
Can I keep my iDRIVE when I update to a new car?
Mostly, yes – Most vehicle manufacturers tend to use only one or two pedal assemblies. Chances are, if you are upgrading to the newer model, the iDRIVE will simply swap over, and you can return your old car to factory performance in minutes. Contact us if you have any questions about changing vehicles.
How long does it take to install?
