I was just chatting with a buddy about tuning cars (not specifically BMWs in this case) and he said that he had previously had his car tuned with a similar ECU flash device, which he uninstalled prior to taking the vehicle to a service station for the VA state inspection. Evidently the mechanic/tech took a look at the car and said to him, "you should drive the car around for about an hour and then come back and I will inspect it." Bottom line, I guess even though he had reverted his ECU to a stock config, it still registered the mod settings; in his case it required a little bit of driving to clear the ECU back to stock. Any idea if this might be true of the Cobb too?
This happened to me when I had to replace a battery on my late 07 C6 corvette with no tune... I don't see it as an issue personally.
