exactly. they (and me) are riding in a 60 thousand dollar BMW so i shouldn't have to pull the same handle twice for the single action required. my tahoe and mustang both lock the door when the car is put in drive so the doors can't be opened from the outside, but both know that the passenger when pulling the handle knows they intend to exit. I would be fine with this on the rear doors for the kids if it's a safety issue but i'm an adult and don't need that kind of forced "safety" issue. It's like on my computer when it prompts "are you sure you want to shut down?" - YES i'm sure, that's why i took the 3-step action to command it.
and if it was simply a safety issue to prevent accidental door opening while moving, then have it that way until the car is shut off in park (when it can't possibly be moving) then allow the single pull. They seemed to think of every other convenience except this obvious oversight
It is to prevent OTHERS from getting in no you falling out....
so your $60k car doesn't get carjacked...
i have this programmed on my seven.... check the Idrive and see if you can turn in off threw there! or just hit the unlock button before exiting the vehicle
If you need that to keep you from falling out then you have bigger issues
I admit this bugged me at first but I got used to it in about a day.
How about those cup-holders
