Seriously? It is a great feature. Had it in my E90 as well. Because of the inbuilt sensor, I doubt you or I could disable it. Maybe the dealer by changing 'codes' or something similar, but I doubt they would want to disable it.
Give it a little more time. Hopefully you will get used to it. It is very good and responds both ways very quickly.
