Yes it did! Not officially, but my service man told me when I was getting the flash done, that vw now recommends an oil change every 5000, no longer 10000.
I thought they were screwing with so I initially declined, then the warning check engine light came on with the wrench and the number 5000.
So, flash computer, double your oil changes. But I just took a trip to Oregon yesterday and got 55.86 mpg on the freeway trip.😀
I ain't going to complain.

The service OIL Change interval is 10,000! do not listen to what that dealer says unless they show it to you in writing....this is Synthetic Oil and it is actually good for longer....That dealer just wants to take more of your hard earned money!

the interval which drives the MFD display message for the driver can be changed with a service tool (for example, VCDS)

just because the setting changed when they did the flash does not mean it is part of the "fix"

it has been reported before that some dealers decide (on their own) that 5k is a better number.

that being said, if they have a service bulletin from VW, or other documentation, it would be welcome to have a copy shared here.
