I will report what software update they put me on.
Cool! Somebody can test my hypothesis, unless your dealer upgrade you to later than 11/2019.70.
I am sure dealer can overcome FA modified coding. I don't think we should mix dealer-installed updates and OTA-installed updates in this correlation.
What I meant was if dealer upgrade the car to at least 11/2019.70 then there's no way to verify my hypothesis. If the car stays at the current rev but dealer overwrites/revert to original FA then chances are it may get OTA notification (if my observation is correct). If not, he/she can validate the FA list and put back the original.
