Mein Auto: 2012 X5
Auto coasting function, will it be disabled in DS mode?

The new eight-speed will be the only transmission available across the entire X5 lineup. It borrows some clever technology from BMW's hybrid vehicles, namely a function that decouples the transmission from the rest of the powertrain so the vehicle can coast without engine braking to save fuel. This works between 30 and 100 miles per hour when the driver eases off the accelerator and doesn't hit the brakes.
I use engine braking, I don't depend %100 on it, but I value having it. Does above mean I won't be able to do it anymore if I get an F15, or will it be disabled when the transmission is in DS mode? I never drove a BMW hybrid so I am not familiar with the functionality, but I sure hope there will be a way to turn it off.
