    Default ECU software update for V6

    Hi,

    I have seen a few posts regarding an ECU software update for pre-facelift V6's. I understand that this can be done by a Vx dealer??

    Has anyone actually had this done, and is it worth it??

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    One or two of us have had this done on the pre-facelift cars and it certainly seems to make a difference.Had mine done on a service while it was under warranty after reading post by Ian-C who said that he'd had his done and it made a difference.If you ask for it,they'll put it on under warranty.Outside warranty is a bit different because you'll have to take the car in specifically to have it done which will cost you.

    ian-C (V6 owner) wrote this in a thread,end of 2005.


    "i know that there is upgrade on the 3.0cdti software, i had a problem with engine light so with no hesitation they remapped the ECU with the new software, but my 3.0cdti was brand new on 10 march on 05. they said upgrade has boosted the turbo and alter the pressure on the jets so it should and was alot better".

    I'm only in the wee 1.9 150, but I'll just chime in to say I had the latest software update and it made a difference to mine. Car runs smoother and I think there is a bit more power.
    Cost me £70 mind out of warranty.

    Was it worth the £70??

    Yeah, for me it was worth it. The latest version is better at maintaining the EGR or something like that, so I gather.
    I stalled once in traffic on the old map. Haven't had the problem since the update, which is about 6000 miles.
