Now that I *have* a bricked car, do you have any advice on what I should do? I'm thinking either the dealer, an "alternative" shop (All German Auto in San Diego), or pulling the DME and sending it to a tuner like ESS.
What would you do if the power went out in your shop during a flash and bricked the car?
I'd take the car to AGA. They know their stuff.
It is possible to resurrect a module which often involves making up a standalone harness and running the program out of the car, but worst case you replace it and move on.
