My 2011 allowed me to "configure" this as well, even though I didn't have the adjustable dampers/suspension/etc.

My 2013 M-Sport (with the 704 suspension) does not offer this.

It replaced the previous "grille" looking thing on MY2011/2012 cars. It's a sensor, not a button.

My dealer toasted my first F10 battery - 8 days into ownership.

I haven't had an issue on my 2013 at all.

And I've driven - with summer tires - all the way down to 5 degrees F in Atlanta.
