Yes, or even newer.

Depends on what specific options are chosen from your specific tuner. Dealers have specific methods of detecting tunes, but aren't on a witchhunt to void warranties at every possible opportunity.

Dealers want to get cars in and out as efficiently as possible. At the same time, keep a potential returning customer happy.

09/11 will likely have 200E or 220E if not updated recently. Those that have never been updated will notice the most drastic changes after updating.

Thanks. The car is immaculate and the foreman who did the update commented on how he was shocked it was on the original software. Shows the car has been well maintained.

Thanks as well. I am about to go pick up the car from being updated. I'll post with impressions.
