Uh, what? Repair? Replacement?

As long as you have the same 3DS you logged onto the eShop with, you should be fine.

I've been worried about this too. I called Nintendo, and apparently 90% of the time they replace your 3ds and transfer your data over.

So yeah, I doubt it.

the ambassador info is on your eshop "account" which gets transferred, you'll be fine i'm sure

I don't understand this. Why do they replace your 3DS with a new one, when you're only sending it for repairs?..

I'm going to get mine sent in here pretty soon, and yes, they will do a data transfer so you can still get the twenty games.

All data gets transferred, as well as any record of you entering the eshop and becoming an ambassador.

It's quicker for them to send a brand new one while they fix the old one and sell it online as refurbished.

I don't know if that "record" of eShop use is kept on the 3DS. It makes a lot more sense to me, and is less exploitable, if they track it on their sever. In a previous thread a user has provided a quote from customer service that suggests Nintendo is indeed tracking it. So unless they are able to transfer whatever whatever the eShop is using to identity you, the new 3DS would lose ambassadorship.
