That's exactly correct. I haven't used ASS once except by mistake and the service bulletin allowing F30 owners a free recode to get rid of it came out the same week I took delivery which was very convenient timing since I couldn't let the wife near the car until ASS was out of the equation.

Since then, my ASS is disabled, it hasn't bothered me at all, it's like I have no ASS.
