Look at it in another way: Taking DSC off (which is equally dangerous for soccer moms) comes at a press of a button. Why couldn't LC also be initiated with the press of a button, or (even better) by pulling both paddles for, say, 2 secs?
Not an excuse for BMW really...
It wears down the drive train, if its only with a push of a button, it would be too convinient and be used 100s of times, but if you make it a pain to set it up, you dont use it as much and avoid wear on drivetrain.
IMO they should put a red button somewhere so we can use it on streetlights
