F20 Brake Drying Function

Apologies if this has been discussed previously. I recently bought a 2013 F20 120d which appears to have the brake drying function. I've had beamers before but never with this so was a little worried when I first experienced the braking until I twigged what it was. However the braking has become severe especially when motorway driving in the wet so much so it reduces the speed by 10-20 mph and I'm now concerned someone will run into the back of me. My question is - can this feature be coded out ?

That's great thanks. Looks like it can be coded then (at least to a low setting). Is this a Bimmercode type fix or more pro support required?

I guess you should take this question to the 3 Series forum (it's much more populated and the models are close): https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/fo...play.php?f=429.
