Using VCM/IDS software we changed the line of code so the body control module essentially knows that the car has upgraded brakes (brembo's) and that it has an upgraded suspension.

Hmm interesting. Does this just mostly change the traction control/advanceTrac or steering feel setting to be more sporty. I?m wondering what this would do with my car stock suspension and slightly upgraded brakes. Now I?m wondering if the setting to allow advanceTrac sport mode can also be passed over from the performance pack. I?m guessing local dealer won?t want to do it tho. ??

Steering feel settings are adjustable in the track apps cluster. The stability control is supposed to allow you to have a bit more fun before jumping in. Though I usually just turn it off anyway. As far as a local dealership doing it that just depends on how nice the dealer is. Its an easy change to make. But the tech has to be willing to make manual changes to the as built data in the car.

No to the hood. She already has tinted raxiom headlights as well as smoked diode dynamics side markers. She will eventually get 13-14 tails though.

She already has a trufiber carbon fiber decklid panel. As far as the grille goes she has a gt/cs Ill either keep that or go with a trufiber grille. Tails are on my list at some point though.
