    I wonder why... have there been reliability issues with the turbo? I've not heard of any.

    Wish they'd issue one for oil consumption or carbon buildup on valves... I haven't had any issues with my turbo, and have heard of no issues from anyone else on the board. Either way, I'm chipped with a full exhaust, so I wouldn't be covered.

    My wastegate flapper is on its way out, I'm guessing that may be part of the issue.

    Got my letter today also. Although I haven't had any issues with the turbo, only thing I've ever had the is oil consumption fix done which took care of most of that problem. Are the two related and is there a problem with our turbochargers?

    I was absolutely thrilled when I got the letter today! Not only did they extend the warranty but they are reimbursing if you have spent to get it fixed. I paid to get my wastegate replaced and it didn't fix my issue. I've been saving money to buy a new turbo. Can't wait to take my car in to get it fixed for free! I'm sure the wastegate flapper mod guys will be excited as well!

    I think my P0299 code w/ CEL might be caused by some play in my turbo's compressor wheel. I've been experiencing more lag than usual in the lower RPMs, but up top the car seems to be spooling normally. I'm dropping my car off for its 75k mile service in the morning, and they know to investigate... I'm afraid they'll blame the code on the CTS intercooler that's installed, but who knows.

    Fingers crossed I get a new turbo!

    I love in the letter where they say if you have a tune your screwed. But on the other hand they are admitting they have bad part in the turbo by issuing the extended warranty. I'm tuned but wife drives the car like a granny if turbo goes there is no way the tune caused it on my car but I guess who cares I would just throw on a ko4.

    hmm... I didn't get a letter. Could it be because they replace mine a year and a half ago under warranty?

    Never mind. Got my letter today as well. Read thru it and it say exhaust system void the warranty. I call my SA and ask about the exhaust and he confirmed it. Guess I'll be keeping my stock exhaust incase I need to swap out unless I decide to go K04 before it crap out again.

    Mine is a 2009. I don't think legally they can deny the warranty for aftermarket exhaust cause it didn't cause the issue. I'll have to look at my letter again. I remember it saying the tune voids it.

    While to us it's obviously not the cause, but they can justifiably reason that the decrease in back-pressure from a more open exhaust set-up could theoretically cause increase in wear on the hotside impeller.

    In order for a dealer/manufacturer to deny a warranty on a claimed part, they must PROVE that the part YOU installed/had installed DIRECTLY caused the failure of the part on which you’re claiming the warranty.

    straight from your post lol depending on your dealer they will try their hardest to blame the problem on your exhaust..dont be surprised if you have to put up a fight with that

    Really curious about this, how would a decrease in back pressure cause increased wear on the hot-side impeller? I can see it increasing wear on the waste gate. From my understanding, the decreased backpressure would allow the hot-side impeller to spin faster, causing over-boost. To prevent the over-boost, the ecu compensates with the waste gate.

    Oh, I'm not saying it would, but I was pointing out that it's a possible daisy-chain-in-affects that they could try to justify a warranty denial over.

    My dealer just called and confirmed that I have a faulty turbo due to the wastegate flapper, and temporarily denied its replacement because my car has an APR tune. Apparently the AudiTechLine suggested that I revert my ECU back to stock so that the turbo can be replaced under warranty. I'm pretty sure/hope that Audi Boulder just saved my ass from being flagged TD1.

    Are we all to get this and the warranty letter is it to make you get your turbo replaced? I have an 09 with no word yet. Oh and I'm over 70k but am a CPO car.

    Terrible design on the waste gate flap. If you search most 09-10 MY flap become loose and get the under boost code.

    My 2010 had the under-boost code trip (once) and Audi happened to check while they were doing my Oil Consumption fix. They replaced the turbo and did the Oil work all at the same time and all under warranty.

    so do they replace the turbo with an improved wastegate flap? or do they just replace it with the same turbo?

    hoping canada gets this extention too.....although this might push my tune plans back a bit now :(

    It supposedly an updated one. When they replace mine 1.5 yrs ago it had the part # listed for the 2012 MY. Only difference I saw was they put a clip on the rod to keep if from rattling. I hoping mine go out again just to see if there are any improvement from the 2012 version. I guessing it will be since the 2012 MY is on the extended list.

    BTW my waste gate crap out at 21k miles so far the 2nd turbo is going on 13k now
