head rest restraint: i don't think there is coding to disable this feature but last thing i want is the message showing on my i drive all the time.

passenger oc3 sensor: without this, in an event of an accident the airbags won't deploy properly on the passenger side. this scared me the most. the only way i figured to resolve this was buy an oc3 sensor mat and have an upholstery shop install it. the sensor is just a thin strip panel. then have the oc3 sensor coded to car and voila. oc3 sensor #52107244122 $416 + $130 coding from dealer + $200 install = $746.

heated seats: i know there is a retrofit wiring kit to get the heated seats to work but i haven't seen anyone in US do such and get them to work.
Head restraints can be easily coded out if needed.
