So I keep getting postcards from GM (only postcards in existence these days LOL). Anyhow I never had the car in for the airbag recall. If I bring the car in now: Question one, car has no cats, will I be reported or logged in Carfax or anything? Question two: Does the airbag recall involve hardware only? I ask because obviously the car has a tune that I do not want deleted. This car was a daily (years ago) but now that it has been modified its a rare track or car meet car so I really could care less about the airbag but would love for my monthly postcard from GM to stop

I had a tune on my car when I took it in for the airbag issue.

They only update the module that controls the passenger side airbag,
tune in the car was not effected.

but I did have to take it back the next day after the airbag light came on :(

You'll be fine, the dealer doesn't care that you modified a 10 year old car. I also had a tune on mine when I took it in, same issue as GXP-G8 though, had to take it back after the light came on but the tune was unaffected. All they're doing is updating the programming for the system that controls the air bags, doesn't touch the ECU.

My passenger presence module crapped out not long after having this done also. I don't know if there's any correlation but there seems to be.
