Take a look at our coding list: www.bpmsport.com/coding.pdf and you should find all the options that you might want. Removing some of the annoying gongs would be on my list.

Tech - the PDF shows 09-12 models on some of the codes... Am I correct in assuming it also includes 2013 models or are some of them N/A for the last model year?

I confirm that too. I coded my 2013 with quite a few things they all worked fine with no problems.

Euro mdm is the track control. Basically, all cars are coded with euro mdm, but US cars have an overlay of a special US mdm. It is easy to remove. I had it done on my car. It is a big difference. It is almost like having the traction control turned completely off. It barely kicks in. I am still not sure how I feel about it. I kind of liked being able to just press my foot down on the throttle without having to worry about the tires losing traction. On the bright side you can always turn it back to US mdm. I want to play with it a little more before I decide. It is really fun with euro mdm, but I am going to go through tires much faster. As for the must have codes. You pay for 1 or them all. So, just get everything you can. I did most everything on the list. The only one I did not care for was the mirrors folding in. After I just wrote all this I realized this is an old post.
