    I don't think it threw a code for the time I had it unplugged.

    I have good news to report!

    I met with a local dealership and we came to an agreement of 2 hours shop time to update the DME per SIB: 121705. I also made the agreement with them no troubleshooting would be performed nor clearing of adaptations. Basically I only wanted to pay for the software update. I got the car back today and cleared the dme adaptations. The car pulls strong throughout the powerband. If there is a dip remaining at 4k it isn't noticeable. I have seen threads where they have shown after the update the DINO does report a very small dip however it isn't noticeable to the driver.

    The other really good news to report is they didn't have to send the DME to NA. They were able to perform the update localy by apparently a remote session with NA. So if you are thinking of getting this update you shouldn't have to wait but 1 day or less for your car.

    In summary the car feels great and is performing as expected. I will update this thread after 30 and 60 days which should be more than enough time for learned adaptations.

    I remember this car, was in the parking lot this morning when I got to work. I was tempted to post it on the ZHP spotted thread. Glad we were able to get it taken care of for you!

    Tech at Leith btw

    Well, I unplugged mine for about three days. It honestly seems better than before, but only time will tell really. Will keep an eye on it.

    I just unplugged mine tonight after I got home from work. Will leave it alone for awhile.

    Regarding that DME update. It was discovered that all it did was cause the DISA to be open all the same (same as unplugging it).
