sorry for the late reply.
You recieve cable and then allow us to remotely take over your PC.
We install the software for you and then extract the file from the car.
File is emailed to us.
We make the necessary changes and send the file back.
We load the file into the car for you.
All you guys do is provide us with an internet connection, plug the cable in and out of the car and turn the ignition on/off.
We can provide a cable that you don't need to keep but you might be in for a very long wait.
The cable you purchase stays with you and the loading of files only takes less than a minute.
There is no sign left that the ECU has been flashed. Dealer cannot say or do anything if there is stock software on the car.
Speed Limiter is removed.

I have 4 years left on the warranty, and really don't want to risk losing that.
If I re-flash the stock file, is there anyway at all for the dealer to notice it was re-flashed? Like a time and or date stamp in the ECU, each time it is flashed.
Is the speed limit removed?
I think you mentioned rev limit is 8400 or 8500, correct?
