Default GM suspension tune upgrade

The $350 update is only applicable to 2014 - 2016 Mag-ride equipped vehicles, correct?

http://gmauthority.com/blog/2017/10/...-c7-corvettes/

Various motor rags are stating it can be applied to all C7 model years, which I don't believe is true (I own a 2015 C7 Z51 and a 2018 C7 Z06 Z07).

Has anyone had this done?

Seems like a band-aid approach vs the DSC.

PDF states that the installation of the calibration will be no charge to the customer.

It still is $350.00 to buy the calibration upgrade.

It is free to the customer - I just verified it with GM on the phone. The dealership is charged $350 by GM for the upgrade, and the dealership can use an operations code to be reimbursed that charge.

There is a $350 accessory upgrade for the Z07 only (changes the track settings).

So maybe this is causing the confusion.

It will be interesting to hear the feedback from people that get this calibration upgrade done.

If it is indeed free as mentioned above, I will be booking my appointment in spring 2018 to get the upgrade.

The way I read this is that the upgrade is $350 msrp, but any of the dealer labor to download and install on your car is covered by GM with an Ops code for the dealer to charge the labor to.

No way GM is giving this away for free.

My dealer advises NOT to do the upgrade unless you experience problems.

What problems does this one person at the dealership think that you need to have first before you get the upgrade?

No there is another upgrade unrelated to this. It’s been in the accessory catalog for over a year.

It’s called the Rough Road Track upgrade. That is $350 and only for Z07’s
