Thumbs up 1st ride of the year!

Took the KGT out of the garage today for the first time this year and words can't describe how great it felt! :yeah

That's the good news. There's some bad too. I just experienced my first surging in first gear at low rpm while turning into the parking lot at work. I'm still on the original 6.0 software so it could be time for the upgrade. What are we on now? 8.0, 8.5, 9.0? Do I hear a 10.0? Anyone? Anyone?

Still on 7.1 as far as I know - I went from the original load straight to 7.1 about 3 weeks ago and it was a huge positive difference in drivability!

Thanks Chris! I'll be heading into the Dealer soon for a 6000 mile service and I'll pretend I know nothing about nothing related to the software upgrades. I'll just tell them about the surging and abrupt throttle and see what they say. I'll let you (and anyone else that cares to read about it) know.
