Ok to let dealer read key with Cobb installed?

I don't have any active codes and just want to check on if when any early service can be scheduled. Don't want to remove it unless I have to. Thanks

Appreciated. Assume you have done this before? Most of the advice on here discusses removing before dropping car off. Wasn't sure about just key read. Thanks.

Might get a hidden red flag that the dealer won't tell you untill something is wrong. Just an opinoin...

Uninstall -- It's safer in case they scan the OBD & notice that somethings aren't OEM anymore. COBB is the easiest tune to installl/uninstall anyhow

I wasn't going to bring car into bay to have the opportunity just bring key and shot the shit with SA. I do recall the last key read stored that I disabled the DSC at some point. So you are probably right that things aren't always what they seem.

Just remove the tune...why risk it over a 3 minute uninstall/15 min re-flash? This is precisely what makes AP so appealing, take advantage of it.
