A question to Shawn

When I press and hold the DSC button for several seconds, DSC will turn off but at the same time, the car will revert from whatever program it was in back to default, which is the lousy Comfort mode. This is probably so to protect those under-trained RWD BMW drivers from spinning around at the first curve, but for us conscious BMW enthusiasts it defies logic:

- why would I want to drive 'on my own' if the computer lowers my shift points, limits the maximum rpm, softens the suspension and steering response?!!

Therefore, a question to our coding guru Shawn Sheridan: have you come across a setting that would govern what happens to the car when DSC is turned off?

TIA,

Piotr

PS. Of course, others familiar with F10 coding are also welcome to comment

No, sorry, but then again, I have never looked for any DCS Codings.

I disagree. I'm sure plenty of people are interested if there's a solution to this. I posted a similar question last year. It doesn't make sense if you're going "full manual" that the car would revert Sport settings to Comfort.

Then the subject should have been to everyone not one specific person.
