I've tried searching, but can't land on much to say what all it does. I have seen some claim you get more power from doing this, but I figure that is just speculation.
The 240E update would fall under "programming" and isn't "coding". Coding is feature changing, etc.. and programming is updating software levels and things of that nature. Given that you have never had any update done, I would certainly recommend having the latest engine software update (240E) applied to your car.
In a sense you can think of it as a windows update - patches and other fixes are applied to the code over time. Given you are on original software, you probably have 60E or 80E. The power gain is really an unknown with this, but overall engine operation should be better post-update.
We can update it remotely as part of our performance tuning software package.
Hope this helps
