Id like to see how it drives after the 1000-2000k break in because my car drove much better during the update period than now.
My entire clutch assembly was replaced. So I'm assuming it's the new version. My tech said the reason why I had shudder is because fluid was leaking into the clutch assembly. But I'm sure it's a combo of that, the new clutch design, and the update.

So for me it's really a tremendous improvement.
