It has updated the car's FA as part of the OTA upgrade to 11/2019.70. Looks like it added 8TL which adds the extra DRL codes.

It's an odd approach as they normally just update the codes using the cafd underlying boolean code.

What do you see when you do a VIN lookup using mdecoder? Any mention of 8TL or just your stock FA option codes.
No 8TL (or S8TL) in mdecoder, only S8TM (?). Not sure what this means or whether I left 8TL before I get upgraded to 11/2019.70. But, I thought coding will be lost with a release update.
