RE: A4 throttle body mod (HELP)

I spoke to Schaumberg, and they told me that there is an Audi dealer in   
the Philly area who has performed the mod.  Plus, AoA has had it done at   
least two times, I was told.  If THAT isn't approval on the non-voiding   
of the warranty, then I don't know what is.

i was thinking about getting the schaumberg performance throttle put into   

my A4Q. judging from the positive comments from people who have had it
done, i'm pretty excited about it. the only thing is that my dealer (Don
Rosen Porsche/Audi) in philadelphia has a problem with it. they 1)
doesn't know about it and is reluctant to even acknowledge it, and 2)
insists that it will void the warranty if it is done. the warranty is a
big concern for me, and both schaumberg and people who have had it done
tell me it won't void the warranty. what is the deal? i am really
disappointed with the way my dealer is handling this. shaumberg has been
really informative, and they told to that my dealer can call them for the   

specifics. my dealer refuses to call, saying that they want to "keep
their hands clean" from this issue. the possibility of imcreased
performance at a low cost is very tempting. so, has anyone who had this
done have this problem? what did you do about it?

thanks for any info.
