I'm getting a 2004 roadster in a few days. Very excited.
I've been reading this forum and others to learn all I can. One thing intrigues me but seems not to get mentioned much (and the manual refers to it very briefly).
It's the idea that the ECU 'learns' your driving style and adjusts. What does this really mean? What variables is it considering? How and how quickly does it learn?
I ask because I wonder whether disconnecting from battery to reset the ECU is of benefit when getting a new old car. If it has learnt the style of its old owner, will it learn my preferences quicker (less to unlearn)? I want it to realise pretty quick that there's a new boss!
I've seen various advice about how long the battery needs to be disconnected for the ECU to reset. Some people say 5 minutes, others 15, some 30. It's easy enough to wait 30 minutes but what's usually required?
So how to educate a roadster? And its new owner.
Any help appreciated.
