They have to check the computer and transmission tunes to see if they are factory tunes. If not they void the drivetrain warranty on the car and you have to pay.

You were just driving along when the failure occurred? Have you raced your car?

This is a known issue with some 6 speed manual transmissions. As long as he hasn't tuned his car or done anything to the engine, it should be covered...
