Here's my thought. It takes a while to get from the point of finding a fix and shifting production to actually start making fixed ECUs. Someone said they should have shipped out 20 instead of using one. Maybe it takes them a week or two to produce 20 (whether they have to retool the ecu production or they just have too much red tape). Well, would you rather wait those two weeks for every dealer to get one, or would you rather send in your ECU and have it done within one week?
For some people, they'd rather not have the car for a week if it means having it fixed in a week, instead of having to wait 2 weeks (or more) for their dealer to be able to do it. For those of you that think having your car in the shop for a week is too much, then just wait for a month or so until your dealer can do it locally.
