    ST feels slower after service

    My first post so here goes, got the 10k km service done with the dealer (Al Tayer Motors), was told they had also updated the software for the gear ratio. The problem is, I now feel the engine has lost power...it ain't as quick as it was before the software update and the engine sounds louder than it used to be. Took it back to the dealer, I get a call after 2 days saying there's nothing wrong with the car so I'm confused, I was also told the software update cannot be undone, is it the engine or my head?

    You'll get used to it. I doubt theres anything wrong. And i dont know much about our transmissions, but i dont think the ratio can be changed with software....
    Maybe they took it out for a spin and filled it back up with 87 instead of premium?

    What all did you have done? Did you have the motor mount TSB done? After i had that TSB done, my car felt funky for about a week, then it was fine. I say just give it time.

    Disconnect the negative terminal on your battery for 10 mins or so with the parking lights on. That'll reset your KAM. Report back.

    What is the KAM? I used to do the same thing on my EVOVIII to reset the ECU so it would re-learn the parameters.
