I wonder if this contributed to why Randy Pobst did not like our car on the track so much.
I think you could have this feature "coded" out of the car if you could find someone to help identify where that specific item exists. It may be worthwhile to ask on the BMW Coding website. You'd probably want to learn how to code if you want to turn it on/off. (if you do not already know how) I tried, have the cable but could not figure it out well enough to do myself. I did have a guy who is local come by though and do some things.
