I would suggest you go to the BMW website and 'build' your car so you can see what options are available with the various packages. There is no 'brake' option by the way. My suggestion is that you go back to the dealership and request a sales or service person familiar with Ms and ask them to show you how you would set the Power and Steering options either via iDrive or buttons. The huge advantage of the M button is that you control all 3 settings with one 'convenient' on/off button on the steering wheel.
