How much does the repair cost if not covered by warranty? Can an indy shop do it or is it dealer-only for some reason?

Now this was a superior machine. Ten grand worth of gimmicks and high-priced special effects. The rear windows lit up with a touch like frogs in a dynamite pond. The dashboard was full of esoteric lights and dials and meters that I would never understand.
https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/article...intenance#willWill using 'aftermarket' or recycled parts void my warranty?
No. An 'aftermarket' part is a part made by a company other than the vehicle manufacturer or the original equipment manufacturer. A 'recycled' part is a part that was made for and installed in a new vehicle by the manufacturer or the original equipment manufacturer, and later removed from the vehicle and made available for resale or reuse. Simply using an aftermarket or recycled part does not void your warranty. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for companies to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty simply because you used an aftermarket or recycled part. The manufacturer or dealer can, however, require consumers to use select parts if those parts are provided to consumers free of charge under the warranty.
Still, if it turns out that the aftermarket or recycled part was itself defective or wasn't installed correctly, and it causes damage to another part that is covered under the warranty, the manufacturer or dealer has the right to deny coverage for that part and charge you for any repairs. The FTC says the manufacturer or dealer must show that the aftermarket or recycled part caused the need for repairs before denying warranty coverage.
So for Audi to successfully deny coverage on the Thermostat they have to prove the modification directly impacted the part. Is that correct? Can't wait to see how this plays out.

in! this will be interesting either way
The classic litigious way of thinking. "IF THIS HAPPENS I'LL SO, BY GUM!!"
Why not just wait until you know what's happening, then formulate an appropriate response? Seems a lot easier than getting all worked up over something you don't know yet.
