    FW update probably disabled this as an unnecessary requirement now.

    Is this an official Audi software upgrade from a dealer? How does the car run better? Quicker? Mpg?

    Hi it was an official update from the dealer my car now idles a lot better as it was rough and knocked a bit between idle and 2k it feels slightly more responsive I have not noticed any mpg increase but I have been doing town driving since,however I have noticed that my exhaust tips are now black and my timing chains sound quieter the software changed the fuel trims so I would probable expect to see a change in economy.
