I have the FSA12B37 done on my car since april 2012 and it had a great impact in how my DCT acts. In the most positive way, if you allow me to say. From my experience (and I know how the DCT behaviour can frustrate a person) if someone has problems with a (any) update, he should look for another dealer, because the one who's done it has poor technical personnel who knows nothing or less about PCM/TCM programming.
