Makes a lot of sense actually since pressing it deactivates DSC.

This must be a change for 2007 model year cars.

You can see it here on Habib's car in Holland:



I wonder how many "man hours" at BMW went into this enhancement

No, this remains the same. Yours may be different since RHD has a totally different button configuration to LHD.

Wow, hadn't noticed that yet. I wonder what else might be different in the 2007 model.

Now I need to find the DSC ON button first before I try the DSC Off button.
