The ABT warranty
ABT engine tuning - More performance guaranteed

Our commitment to bring out the best in every engine is part of ABT’s family tradition. Whether the task at hand is optimisation of the electronic engine management or retrofitting a turbocharger or compressor – where performance upgrades are concerned, we are in our element, making us the world’s No. 1 for cars from Audi, VW, Seat and Škoda. What’s more, thanks to the experience we have acquired through years of professional racing, we know that it isn’t only about power, but also durability. In the end, only a combination of the two can ensure true and lasting driving pleasure.

ABT New Vehicle Warranty

ABT Sportsline GmbH will provide a 2-year warranty within the scope of the factory warranty after initial delivery of the vehicle up to 100,000 km in accordance with the ABT warranty guidelines (only valid in the following countries: Austria, Italy, Luxembourg, Belgium, The Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland and Poland). A mobility guarantee and a claim for a replacement vehicle are not included in the warranty. The ABT warranty is included in the price of the performance upgrade.

If, for example, the performance upgrade from ABT Sportsline GmbH is installed on a vehicle 10 months after initial registration, ABT Sportsline GmbH will assume the manufacturer's factory warranty for the remaining 14 months up to a maximum of 100,000 km after the initial delivery of the vehicle.

In addition, the ABT extended warranty is available for AUDI, VW, SEAT and CUPRA vehicles with a factory extended warranty. This must be concluded at the time of the provision of services.

The ABT Sportsline extended warranty will incur additional costs depending on your vehicle’s kW output or group. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us or your VW, AUDI, SKODA or SEAT dealer.
