I actually got my AA Xede installed yesterday by Terry335 (very nice and helpful guy BTW) and noticed the same cooler temp effect. I used to watch my temp all the time, and stock I used to have it 250-270 degrees all the time, now with Xede and heavy driving it doesn't go over 230.
So, it's not a placebo effect. Gas mileage got much worse though

I know, but it's so tempting to step on the gas to just feel all that power. I hope I'll get used to it in a week or so and get back to my normal driving

Silver state, using a laptop and a serial cable, you can update the PROCEDE to the newest version software which is 1.45 once it has been installed in your car. It makes a difference in driveability.

Just go here and download the loading software and the new 1.45 map.

I dont think there is an 100 octane map, maybe SHIV will chime in.

Well i had no improvement in oil temp as others have claimed.

Yet again I had no issue with oil temps before either. The power comes on even smoother now, and it appears my little surge at 4000 rpms is now gone. Thanks SHIV.

+1. Installed yesterday. 1.4 had a surge at 4100 rpm that lessened a little as the ECU adapted. v1.45 has all but eliminated it, very smooth power delivery.

335lvr, good to hear. Mine is completly gone too. Now I can pull hard from 2000 rpms up to the new power which came with 1.45 which is around 6700 to 6800 rpms.

Now time for a new round of goodies, ultmate pedals and front aero spoiler. I need to stop spending money on this car!!!
