What surprises me is that the SA had no idea what the reprogramming is supposed to accomplish. Normally he is a very reliable, astute SA.

Any festers know what the reprogramming does?

When my car was coded, we tried to change the "3 flashes on turn signal" to 5 flashes. We were unsuccessful. Maybe you can do that.

Strange high-pitched noise from engine after shut-down

As I said in my original post, the sound seemed to come from the dead center of the engine and not from the wheel well.

With voice command, just start the process by saying "Enter address". It's easy from there.

Looking back, what option do you regret paying extra for?

I like all the options I ordered. The one option I wanted but did not order is HUD. My wife felt we were spending a lot and asked me to forego the HUD.
