    My MyAudi app says I should have 2 software updates for emission fixes. Iíve heard bad things about software updates. Does anyone know what changes are made, how it affects performance and should I get them done?

    TIA

    I declined them on the basis that there has to be a downside. My take was it would use more adblue, hence why they give you 5 free adblue tank refils to entice you into having the update.

    No adblue in mine. I didnít think the V6 had it.

    Avoid it because they cut the power back drastically. It will use more adblu but at least the pump won't fail as quick. I had mine done and then remapped back to a more appropriate level of tune after audi detuned it on the basis of emissions. Happy with the results now but I wouldn't recommend anyone else getting their's done on my experience

    Makes sense as you suddenly cant reduce emissions without their being an equal and opposite reaction, other things being equal.
