Has anyone had this before?  I had the car getting the clutch and g'box worked on and apparently they disconnected battery because the dashboard screen were saying it was 1999. I have noticed that the car is much more responsive, the turbo is much more vocal and can be heard in all the gears rather than only 2nd gear.

I had that with my old Peugeot 106, basically the chip would reset the reset the mixtures based on the way you drive etc.  It makes me wonder how that would impact on chip flashing ...

It cant change the written file, but may have experienced throttle body reset or a stored fault codes neing eliminated and changing something
