    I was considering a tune. I have resisted on my RS3 because Audi actively looks for ECU changes. So I asked about BM3
    and my dealer was sent this:


    The flash counter only counts the initial unlock and after that you can flash as many times as you want.

    The original CVN is left intact.


    If the above is correct wouldn't the count always be 0 or 1 from factory and any change would be the tip?

    On most platforms it just does an initial 1 count. Yes your dealer could see this count.

    Im not the best at sugar coating it. And honestly these cars seem to be holding up well so I am not too concerned.

    I've tuned every car I've ever had and never had a problem. I wouldn't own this Supra if it weren't tuned.
