I suppose I could but I use Sport mode a lot anyway due to all the hills around here so I'm moving the shifter back and forth anyway. There are some conditions it's appropriate and others its not. I think if I shut it off I wouldn't bother to reach up and turn it on when it would be of value.
My car is 5 months old and I'm pretty used to it. This is my 9th and so far hands down favorite BMW
