2011 parking brake auto release?

had this function on the 2012 528ix loaner, when the parking brake is engaged, with your seat belt on, as soon as you put in gear and hit the gas the parking brake will release automatically. but on my 2011 535iX it doesn't do that and the indicator tells you to release parking brake.
I'm wondering if a coding change can enable that on my car.

I am interested in this feature as well. I had it as standard in my Audi Q5. It is very convenient.

My 2012 F10 sometimes does this and sometimes shows me the indication. I'm not sure what's different when I do it but I'm certain you can do it and it may even be a standard feature.

I can't help with the coding element but can confirm the my 2012 UK F11 will automatially release the parking brake if you have your seat belt on and hit the accelerator.
