I have a CS/IT background and have done all other types of firmware flashing so this might be a new frontier
welcome to the club,, ill tell ya,, the 545 is a great car and love it.... and hate it..... when it comes to repairs.. the best thing for this model is frequent oil changes..and coolant.. also since u just got it i would also change the break fluid. and the hydraulic fluid too...

check out if ur tech savy.. lots of cool styff u can code on these cars if u know how to do it... ive been trying to get informed on that stuff so i can do it myself one day...
