    Lots of posts lately regarding remapping and replating Navara's, has anybody investigated the warranty and insurance implications of these actions.Both would seem to place greater stress on other parts of vehicle and insurance would definitely need to be informed but does this result in increased premiums?

    Hi,

    We had a Van Akken smart box fitted which is similar to remapping and our insurance company made a note of it but we didn't have to pay any extra.

    As for warranty I would think that they wouldn't be to happy, but to be perfectly sure I would suggest you contact the warranty supplier as they are the only ones at the end of the day that can answer your question correctly

    Re-plating again as above contact both the insurance and warranty companies also I think you need to contact the DVLA

    Hope that helps

    anything you do that enhances the vehicle is supposed to be reported to the insurance be it a towbar or chip and they decide wether to increase the premium or not depending on what you have done, with regard to a chip i would wait till after the warrenty unless it was supplied and fitted by the dealer. Dealers will use any excuse to get out of replacing expensive faulty parts when under warrenty.
