    Most software updates are done as part of what are called "campaigns", and are merely installed when the car comes in for other work. Often they don't even tell you they've done it and they won't divulge exactly what they're for.

    Generally it's just minor tweaks to improve driveability, economy, performance, that sort of thing.
