HAHAH TY! my wife was the one who egged me on to order it shockingly enough. Ive already looked at the flashing procedure and it doesnt say specifically anything for our cars. Im assuming its one press of the ignition without ur foot on the brake to get to the point where you can load the tune right?

Yes to go into accessory mode then plug the tuner in and its always a good idea to have everything off including headlights.

You will not regret it! I got the Unleashed 93 tune at 700 miles and haven't looked back. I'm a computer dope, and I figured it out. Oddly enough, my gas mileage went up a bit. So much torque, you need much less gas pedal to maintain normal speeds. That doesn't happen very often, but it's a nice side benefit if you can drive normally. Good luck with that...

Depends what you mean by violate. If you damage the engine/turbos and they specifically look for software modifications (such as a tune), then there's a possibility your claim will be denied. IMO, it's a general consensus that it's a gray area. Even if you go back to stock, each flash resets some sort of mileage counter.

Think of it as a law that's not enforced all the time, but they could potentially nail you.

AFAIK, there are people on this forum that have had oil leaks, and even an engine replaced. Some with or without a tune. The tune was not questioned if I recall.

Bottom line, YMMV depending on dealer/service manager

I was nervous also because of this until someone on here said something that made sense to me. If you wait to tune until after warranty and you have an engine problem, you have a 0% chance of warranty coverage. If you tune with Warranty, at least you have a decent chance of coverage.

Well, by the time my esp is over, the car will be paid for 120k miles.




At that point I'm hoping its worth 10k at least and around 150k i will sell it and buy $40k or so more worth of car.


How much is the tune?

I got the Unleashed tune as well and I was surprised to see my mpg go up as much as they did. But didn't know why. Nice to gain power and miles. Kinda like it pays for it self right!
