warranty notice for ECM update

Received warranty notice for ECM update to lower emissions and the risk of MIL Failure.

A big alert in the center of the letter warns that tuned or chipped cars are not covered for software overwrite or failed MIL components.

Guess I'm not bringing mine in lol

I got that letter too.. wondering if anyone has done it yet. I've only put a GTI catback on mine so far, so I figure I'm probably still safe.

Got mine the other day, threw it away immediately. Lol

Lots of threads on tdiclub about it. People who live in strict emissions states have to get it done in order to renew your inspection.

I had an eager beaver service writer overwrite my tune w/this update. Unitronics had to rewrite the code to get it back on the ECU & my fuel mileage has taken a big hit, even w/the new tune.
