I haven't gotten a concrete answer on if the software fix works given the issue with passing emissions. I know the software will show the car is ready for testing but still wondering if it could pass. I like the idea of several hunderd vs several thousand to fix the issue.

Any help here, greatly appreciated.

It passes, that's the point of doing it
