But even though it made no sense to disable the e-diff with DSC off, that was how it was done on earlier models. I have never driven a BMW before the F20 that had e-diff enabled with DSC off. Some purists will say that when you disable the driving aids, they should all be completely off.

And why would drivers who don't know what they are doing want to disable the DSC?
