IF that's the case, then a re-flash back to stock wouldn't matter. Batteries are frequently disconnected in service bays to avoid unintentional grounding or shocks. So, what good does this supposed "counter" do them? Nada. Heck, I just had some stereo work done and I know the battery was disconnected and reconnected at least 3 times...so SOA would accuse me of "re-flashing" my ECU 4-5 times? BS, they are not that stupid.

I just called my dealer, who's a friend of mine, and asked him about this. He laughed, then told me as long as there isn't a DP on the car, they don't hunt for tunes. Maybe other dealers are different, I dunno.
