She is doing about 30 miles per day on highway. I'll take the decision after some time of usage of that car. It is after lift vehicle 2018.
Any software change sets the td1 flag (Google it, plenty of info out there) which is detectable by VW when they hook your car up to their online diagnostic system. Even if you revert back to your original map the flag remains set.Generally they have mechanisms to detect tampering with the ECU, and hence the warranty is void. I don't know how they do it on the Up, perhaps some form of seal.
Well I think I am glad that I brought up the topic, the dialog is very helpful for those still thinking about which model suits them. I am glad we went for the High Up. Interesting the comment about the engine being run in and it would be even more interesting to see what the outcome when the engine on the 60PS is run in.
I guess in my case a better expression than run in is perhaps loosened. I have heard many stories from technicians who have had two similar cars into the workshop (not always VW). Where one car has more miles than the other. The car with higher miles was noticeably quicker and more free revving than the car with lower miles. However in some cases the faster higher mileage car sounded a little loose tooOn the sub-topic of engine run-in see Do modern engines need running in? - Page 1 - General Gassing - PistonHeads UK there is still a need to drive sensibly (boys) for the first 1500m/2000km. After this you can start planting the right foot. Has anyone here with an older Up experienced engine flat spots? Often occurring at the 70mph speed limit which we, the law abiding Uppers would never dream of exceeding.
