Fixing to take it in for the first oil change. Show of hands, do you flash to stock before and flashback your maps after you leave?

Warranty or recall work, put car entirely back to stock

Dealerships are infamous for hiring idiots and letting them handle oil changes. Those situations lead to major issues. Find a good reputable shop that has been around a long time. Get your oil changed there.

I'm just trying to burn my "complimentary" oil changes that I couldn't decline first.

Flash to stock first. Going in with an altered tune could cause issues with other things they may do without even telling you, such as an ECU software update.

never go in with an altered tune, they will void your warranty

and no, they won't tell you that they have done so
The Dealership can't void your warranty, only Honda of America can.

I went in tuned.
I love my dealership.

:)
It’s not recommended though but again some dealerships are tuner friendly others aren’t.

Lol my warranty was not voided and yeah I received a text after I left the dealership from the mechanic letting me know to let him know if there’s any issues. Questions I had and not to hesitate to bring it back if any issues arose.
And a link to a survey on how they did.
