    Had mine done over the Christmas holiday . They had the car for the whole day , so i don't know exactly how long it took . I guess depending on build dates differing degrees of work may be required .My car has a manual trans and that may require more or less than the e-gear cars. Don't know.

    Vanny....

    Can you elaborate...either with a campaing number or a more specific description of what was involved. Are we talking trans/brake/PS/engine hydraulics....etc....?

    Thanks,

    My dealer said they are supposed to replace a couple of hydraulic lines and something else on the e-diff. Supposedly this is related to the problems some early cars had with oil contamination resulting in replacing the whole system. However, as far as they know, the cars affected all exhibited trouble within a few hundred miles. My car has 3100 miles, no problems of any kind (stick shift). They are also supposed to re-torque or replace battery strap brackets on my car as well. Not all cars are affected by these TSB's. Call your dealer for details.

    My car is an 06 model and is not part of this recall. The latest TSB is #158 which involves re-torqueing or replacing battery strap brackets. This TSB affects all 430s. Apparently battery cables can loosen under "spirited" driving. Spirited probably means track driving?

    You are correct. It isn't critical but most high end car mfgs. always do updates/factory campaigns when you bring it in for service. I happen to know the Service Manager at FoSV and he took mine in and did actually 2 updates. The F1 tranny and another one associated with the power passenger seat connection. I guess they found some connecter that brings the power to the seat were not properly seated. (workmanship error). BTW that technician is now making Salami casings in someone's cellar in Marenello ... :) As a result when you push the seat all the way back it could disconnect. It's a 5 second check. Mine was OK.

    The F1 only effects VIN#s that has a "144" in the number. On VINs with 145 and above the problem was taken care of before the care left the factory. My car was in for 2 days since he had to check the serial # on the gearbox once I brought it in and then order the parts for a next day delivery.

    I definitely feel a difference at 1st gear launches. Much smoother off the line.

    Silver,

    The campaign which was open on your car had nothing to do with the F1 tranny -- It's an E-diff parts issue and applies to 6-speed as well as F-1 tranny cars.

    The Introductory Bulletin # is 1362 and is referred to as Campaign 144. Also, some cars with a Vin# 144 are just fine, as long as your Vin # is 144889 or greater. All 430's UP TO that VIN # require some level of update to their E-diff components.

    The intro to the Technical Service Bulletin, which all dealers received, reads: "For your information, new components are being used in the E-Diff hydraulic system starting with Assembly #62016 (VIN # 144889). The purpose of this update is to identify the components installed on each car and ensure that all cars are uniform and have the latest components installed."

    There are "four groups" of cars based upon Assembly Numbers for which revised E-diff parts are identified, each group requiring a different degree of component R&R and a differing amount of time to effectuate the update. For example, Group 4 cars (assembly # 60983 up to and including 62015), the most recently built cars covered by Campaign 144 only requires approximately 1 hour of work to accomplish the update of E-diff parts


    If your car shifts better now, it's because the dealer hooked up their computer/scan tool during your service and properly adjusted your F1 tranny's parameters as controlled by the TCU. BTW, that's something they should have done during their PDI of the vehicle before delivery to you. ;)

    Hope my post adds clarity and not confusion to the issue.
