My twintop didn't come with a sport button but instead it has a button to enable and disable the reverse parking sensors. Since I would never want to disable those sensors I was hoping I could use it as a button to enable sport mode. Has anyone tried this before? Would it even be possible?

It’s not possible, you need the sport switch, depends on model as well whether it’ll work

I don't get why it specifically needs the sport switch. It's not like there's anything programmed on it right?
Any idea where I could find a list with supported models?

I already have 4 button slots of which two are chair heating, which I definitely don't want to lose so I'd have to replace it with the sensor button anyways.
What exactly is this ipc thing?
Any idea if some cheap Chinese opcom clone would work as well?

You’ll need to find out the correct ident for the ipc, before buying 1, as you may be wasting your money

There is a list, but I can’t find it on google
What model/engine do you have? Other than it’s a twintop?

Chances are it’s just a case of fitting the switch panel, the 1.9 should be set up for it

Sounds good, but what I still don't understand is why I wouldnt just be able to rewire the parking button to wherever the sports button is supposed to be connected to. It shouldn't be able to tell the difference between them right?
