Does your ECU have to be reflashed back to stock before going into the dealer for warranty work?

I know what you mean, i always have them park it right in the front and tip them good. I also know some of them now and they take care of me, never had a single problem. Most of the places i go to have many more expensive cars than mine as well lol! But its still a risk, the one time i decided not to valet it (mostly cause i was only gonna stay for an hr) was the time i got keyed! It was terrible and cost a lot to fix but looks just new again, thankfully!

The guy who did it said it wouldn't have to be, and to just let the dealer or better yet the mechanic know it is so they do not reflash it back to stock. He said i get 1 free reflash though if they do! I wish my friend was still a mechanic at bmw to help me out, hopefully he knows someone that could help me out there! Don't feel like losing my warranty..lol

I agree with this as well. I had my M5 repainted from head to toe, took almost 2 months. Not more than 10 minutes from the shop some idiot in a Ranger swerved onto the shoulder and I got my first rockchip...I was so pissed. Having a shop touchup any chips now will cost less now vs waiting after it's been beatin up for a season.

Do not wait until next spring to protect those areas...you will have serious damage within 1000 miles.
