Based on previous experiences of other forum members, it would be better to go through Seat Customer Service.

So picked the car up and it's noticeably improved just driving it off the forecourt. A lot more punchy in 1st and 2nd.

See how it goes driving it really cold and after the ecu has bedded in.

Should I perform the update if I have none of these problems?

Personally I wouldn't, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

Thought I would share some videos of start up cold left standing over night:





The two videos to me look virtually identical with the engine going down to 750rpm after 1:30 mins. So the map hasnt changed the cold start procedure.

Both the videos, to me, seem absolutely normal for a petrol engine. Likely the remapping changed the fuel mixture and/or timing at the start.
