OTOH, if Honda says your VIN needs the update and the dealer says it already had the update, I'd be quite concerned that the dealer didn't get it right. (If Honda assigned the update to your VIN, they'd know because they know volumes of data about exactly how the car was built. Precisely for this reason.) Take the TCM surge update for early 1.5Ts. Many owners were initially told that their cars were current but they still had the issue and eventually this was traced to the dealers not keeping the code in their programming laptops current.

So....should I take it to another dealer? I also requested the TSB for the TCM surge be updated as well as I feel like my car does this especially around 60-70mph. They again stated the update had already been performed by the manufacturer and there wasn't any update available.....???
