New 1er owner with a quick Q

I've owned an E46 for some time but had to find something new recently on account of a deer jumping out in front of me while I was going 60 mph. Long story short, I picked up an '09 CPO 128 last week. Love the car aside from a few small gripes.
1. Run flat tires are the bain of my existence, but that's an easy fix.
2. "Drive off assistant." The feature that holds the brakes while you're stopped on a hill to keep the car from rolling before you can release the clutch. This is probably a moot point to most drivers but I'm a long time stick shift driver and an admitted purest when it comes to certain things. More specifically, it bothers me when electronics "dumb down" the car and make it easier not to eff things up (stability control is another gripe of mine, but that's easy to turn off). Is there any was to disable this horrible "feature?" It's driving me nuts!!
