        Can they not take it on out Tech2 and monitor the knock values? That would tell them what the retard values are? Plus they could monitor the other sensors to see whether there is a faulty sensor which could be causing it

            If the airflow meter is faulty then it could explain the car pinking as it will think X amount of air is coming in and fuel for it, but if the airflow is actually Z then it may not be fueling enough and will lead to the car pinking.

            However this can all be confirmed if they take the car for a run and monitor the Tech2 values, which will show if the knock retard is being used, and they can also see the AMM flow reading and compare this with what it should be seeing.

            See what happens once the AMM is changed, if it's still a problem and your not happy with the dealer then see if anyone in your area could datalog the car for you and help to diagnose where the issue lies.
