Their time is valuable and I'd hate to keep someone with a REAL problem waiting because of this. We'll see.
I wouldn't condone lying to a service department.
I'm sure we can find a tuner (independant source, might have to pay a bit though) here who can view the ECM and see if any permanent modifications were made. Simply viewing the ECM settings will not increment the flash counter. The only problem I see with that is this device will cut into their business since part of a tune is generally to turn off AFM.
