Car went in for a couple of things today, and one thing I asked them to do was to check that the car had the latest ECU software as another 2.0T owner (sorry, forgotten who you were!) mentioned recently that he had his updated. Even though I'm running a remap, I wasn't sure if there were bits that may alter anything that wasn't remap related - thought I may as well have it. Obviously I returned the car to original software before I took it in - as I always do.
Went and picked up the car at the end of the day. Conversation with the Service Manager (who I get on very well with)......
Him: You know that the ECU update won't affect your chip?
Me: What chip?
Him: You've got a chip on your engine, haven't you?
Me: No, haven't got a chip.
Him: What was it you talked about on that forum I saw then?
Me (thinking - bu**er, busted!!) Oh you mean my remap, yeah I've got a remap on it.
Him: Cool. Oh, so have we overwritten it then?
Me: Nah, (and explained how it all worked and that I always revert back to original when I bring it into them)
He was fine about it. In fact, he was the guy that said he'd have no problem submitting any engine/gearbox warranty claims if I got a remap (as long as it wasn't blatently obvious that the remap was to blame). I just hadn't bothered to tell him that I had got the remap - thought it easier that way.
So, busted by the forum!! He came across it as he was searching for something on Vectra - and came across my name. He wasn't 100% sure if it was here, or VS. No biggy for me that he knows (he's cool about it) - just thought it amusing that it was a forum that got me 'busted'!
And the great news is that my indicators are now fixed, along with the Multi-V tensioner problem.
