My AA stage 2 tune might got overwrite from dealer

I brought my car in for a maintenance service. One of the jobs they did was performed CBS data correction. I believe this is the feature that tells you when a service is needed. I dont know if they reflashed everything and wiped out the tune or it's a minor correction in the software only. The car doesn't drive like before or it's just me.

If the car isnt under warranty call them and ask. If it is, I wouldn't call them so someone doesnt have the chance to mark on your customer profile.

I believe AA will allow you one reflash free of charge. The vendor you go to however may charge you for labor. Check first.

A simon programmer will save you the hassle by allowing you to reflash the performance program or OEM stock program whenever you need to. You may find it a bit pricey though.

So if people have to question if the tune is there or not it must not be a big change and therefore not worth it.

If it got wiped out and had been a big difference from stock then you would think it would be obvious.

More and more seems like the tune is not worth the money for what you get and most of the effect from, it is from the throttle sensitivity.

Kind of thought the same, good point. Shouldn't you be able to tell the difference of power right away?

Pretty sure you got the tune from us. If so we still have your file and will re flash you free of charge.
