Performance software upgrade


When you install the performance software upgrade, the motor's combined certified power output changes. You will then receive new stickers with updated power rating information, as well as a rank mark sticker for your car's front grille. We've put together a list of instructions to help you disassemble your current stickers and apply the new markings on your car in the best way possible.

Assembly

Assembly

1. Clean the door surface where the sticker will be applied with the attached isopropyl-alcohol wet wipe.
2. Remove the protective foil from the back of the sticker, starting on the left edge of the text. Do not peel completely in order to avoid touching the adhesive before applying.
3. Position one (1) door sticker on the door. Use the tape applied in step 1 of disassembly to line up the sticker correctly. Use a plastic scraping tool to apply the sticker slowly and carefully, beginning with the left edge of the text before going over the rest of the sticker, removing the remaining protective foil in the process. Be careful not to scratch the paint.
4. Remove the top-layer assembly foil (with holes) and the masking tape.
5. Clean the sticker assembly area on the door surface.
