Throttle response, thus, is much better than before, when I would also get the dead spots through corners and at stoplights.

Overall, much more capable feeling car now.
Thanks for the follow-up and honest feedback after some time with it feta. Also, thanks for taking some time and revisiting the topic instead of just saying "Got it done. Everything is great!".

Based on your, and others on this this thread, experience I'll definitely insist this gets done when I go in for first service.
