Way I see it: It's a decision each individual has to make for themselves - balancing the time/effort of removing/reinstalling vs possible consequences of it being found on the car.
At the end of the day, make your own decision but I just can't see how it's a good idea to recommend that someone take a warranty-voiding risk like that for no reason other than to save 30 minutes of effort - regardless of what you/I may or may not do...
It's like what Clarkson says about Alfas: He'd buy one himself but he'd never recommend one to a friend.
Have to disagree..
But each to their own... If you have to ask " if its a good idea to remove",
then heck, just remove if you are that concerned about a tune being detected, whilst replacing a battery connector in the boot...
IMO, its a waste of time removing the tune.
I had the injectors replaced, and on a seperate occasion had the turbo sensors replaced, without removing the tune..
BUT, if it helps you sleep at night, go for it and remove the tune..
