15 months later after software update. Throttle response

When I first picked up the car in August of last year I was bitching about the throttle delay from a stop. How when you pressed the gas pedal, it didn't seem to want to move forward and as you kept pressing on the gas pedal it would finally jerk forward. Also sometimes when you came to a near stop and then needed to accelerate, it would result in a jerky acceleration.

I finally took the car back in today for service for an annual oil change. I should have probably brought it back at 12 months, but I got lazy. The car only has 9k miles on it. So they updated the software and here are my thoughts.

I got so used to how the car drove I never really noticed it anymore. Maybe it fixed itself? It seems a little smoother after the software update, but I find myself questioning if it's psychological.
