Mathme is on a distinguished road
I picked up my '16 CD on Thursday and had the opportunity to drive it from SF to LA this past weekend. Overall it drives very similar to the before version. Here are a few observations:
1). on cold start-up, it does shift higher and hold gears longer than before. Lots of times the shifts do not come until almost 3,000 RPM. Once warmed up it does drive similarly to before.

2). I agree with the postings above...it does sound more like a "diesel" than before. Especially at cold start.

3). For performance/MPG, the computer said 31.8 MPG out of the trip with a total mileage of about 785. This was mostly highway driving.

4). As others have said, your dealer will fill the tank and it took a couple of days. They also gave me comp detail.

got mine back yesterday. Took a couple hours to do the software updates. When engine is cold it definitely revs higher and longer. Like others have said, when the engine is warm seems to be normal. MPG is lower too. Check should arrive in ten days.

We were scheduled to get ours done last week and dealer service said they don't have the parts to do the recall and they are unsure when they will get them - anyone else heard this?

I have a "16 so I believe it was all software. It took about 2-3 hours.

By the way check came yesterday.

CaptLeslie will become famous soon enough
The way it was explained to me is that a small number of hardware parts were made because they were not 100% sure California was going to approve the fix! The software only vehicles would be easy and fast, but the hardware vehicles would have to wait until they could manufacture the parts once the prototype fix was approved! None of this was told to the dealers until days before the implementation date! They were left holding the bag to explain why the delay!

I got back $9200 from Porsche and $1500 from Bosch. I can't tell a difference in performance. Haven't checked the mileage yet but I am sure it will be about the same. I have 84K on the truck now. Will be trading for a low mileage as soon as it get repaired at the dealer. You just can't beat the value of a Cayenne Diesel.
