Btw you can also just pull the ASD module located in the trunk , this will also retain the audio system/sound and only remove ASD all together
There was a slight revision to the Active Sound module but the change was minor and not something that seems to have changed the behavior you've described. The M5 Technician Training Manual doesn't mention complete disablement of the audio system.
