    it will not void any warranty, it's simple plug and play

    I think the only thing that might happen where the warranty becomes an issue is if there's a short in the wiring. Thus, who caused the defect? But I'm not even sure about the warranty for the wiring, whether it applies or not in this situation. Hopefully somebody else knows the answer.

    Well this is what I got back from Stage 10

    "The ESS is an aftermarket part so we can't guarantee if it will or won't void your warranty.
    It MAY, depending upon the dealership, so if you are worried, it may be safe not to install it.

    However, the ESS can be installed/removed fairly easily so many customers put back their factory shifter when they take it in for servicing.

    It might be good to check with you local dealer. If in doubt, it may be better to pass.

    Please let me know if you have any more questions!

    Sincerely Yours,
    Toshi Hayama

    If something did happen, couldn't you just swap back to the oem shifter? Seems easy enough. What's the warranty on the piece itself? Can't decide between this or the OGS.

    QUICK QUESTION: When you guys bring it for carwash, which button you press because everytime I bring it..the carwash guy just sits there until its done and just goes out when its ready to dry. I feel sorry for them :(

    The door won't lock if you leave the Smartkey in the vehicle.

    I have had a silver one with blue lighting since Christmas. Expensive, yes. Very well made, works perfectly and well worth the $

    I will be purchasing this and I will be in the same predicament as well. I have 2 car wash places I always go to. Guess I'll have to keep telling those guys how to operate the ESS. :eek:

    What is the warranty on the ESS? Couldn't find anything on the website.

    EDIT: nevermind I found it, it's 30 days.
