    2.0T ECU S/W update recall

    Anyone else had this ?

    My car went in for service on Tuesday, and they did a S/W update on the engine at the same time. Apparently, it's a non-essential recall which gives performance and economy improvement, which is only done as and when cars come in to the dealers. Only applies to 2.0T models.

    Can't say that I've noticed any difference in performance, but pulling away from rest is a lot smoother. Before, I found you had to get the revs and clutch action spot-on to avoid any jerkiness.

    I've had something similar done when my A4 went in for it's 1st service. Car is so much smoother since the update.

    Had mine done last month - pickup is smoother as you say, but I haven't noticed any economy improvements - in fact my car seems to defy accepted wisdom and from new up to 6000miles I've lost about 25 miles per tank.

    Had mine done too. I was told that it prevents the ECU light from coming on when it shouldn't.

    if they do update your ECU to a new map (Upgrade) your revo one will be replaced.

    you could buy the revo SP1 so u can save your map, and upload it at a later date

    You will need your ecu reflashed by your Revo dealer as the dealer will reflash the ecu which will overwrite the Revo code. The dealer will be able to get a credit against the reflash as you already have the code and his cable will have the log of your car being flashed. So there should be no charge. The SPS does not save the Revo code, it simply switches between version of the map on the ecu.

    Hope this helps.

    My paperwork lists this as recall 24H8 - Software update if anyone wants to be more specific with their dealers.

    Just got the papers that I need to take my S3 in for a 24H8 action. Now I at least know what it's about. Got me pretty concerned for a while.
