Yeah, the downside is warranty denial if problems occur. Quit thinking you are smarter than SOA engineers, trust me, you are not.

I always just let the dealer do it. Its worth the $60 or so (to me) to have them deal with it.

but yes, you do need to use it.

even if you still use it they wont cover it. They only way they WILL cover it is if THEY do the service.
