Lesson #1 to be learned: Avoid dealer like the plague. Lesson #2: if you can live with it, do.
I cant avoid the dealer if my car is under warranty and there is a issue. I wanted it fixed before i tuned it. How they heck was i supose to know they were going to send me a ECM that was untuneable currently. Im clueless when in come to this stuff. I guess i can ask them for my old ECM if they still have it but unlikely.

The Ecu would require a bench unlock. I would verify the the datestamp on the DME/ECU its self. You can slide it up 2-3 inches without disconnecting anything. If its older than 06/01/20 i should be able to unlock it via a bench tool. That version should be older than that.

If you take the time to read the owner's manual from page 8 to page 13, you will
realize that Toyota and or BMW have access to just about everything you have
done or not done to the car...Read carefully and you know that they can recall
any data they want. The only way to keep some privacy is to do like 65sohc advised: stay away as much as you can or don't modify.

Date on my ecu is 06/29/19 so is a bench unlock is the only way?, how much for an unlock?

Yes you will need a bench unlock. I can send you a message about pricing. We are going to be doing some black friday specials on the majority of our tuning, and unlocks will be included. =)

Is a 6/26/2020 ECU locked out completely? Or is it a toss-up?
