Went in for the VANOS recall, turns out the dealer didn't have all of the required parts and instead took to fixing a long overdue "profiles" problem where the "edit profiles" option was grayed out and couldn't be selected. Dropped off the car yesterday and supposed to pick it up tomorrow.

is there anything in particular to be on the lookout for, with this particular repair/reprogramming?

I'd had mine in for something else earlier this month and as a result, they needed to do a complete vehicle s/w update - basically, they reprogrammed the entire car. I haven't really noticed anything different, but I haven't driven it much since (I drive my i3 most of the time now and use the GT on longer trips, which don't happen all that often).

I'm scheduled for the VANOS repair on Monday...hopefully, it goes as intended.

Good luck with the repair. Ours was scheduled for this past Wednesday but didn't happen because some of the required parts are still missing.
