Question Way to increase ticks of Triple Turn Signal feature?

I was reading a forum of another make of car and the dealer can increase the number of ticks when changing lanes. Can you do this on BMWs? Of course it wouldn't strictly then be a triple turn signal...

It's not triple turn then though, it's quad!

Isn't three flashes enough? Just wondered why you'd need more?

Three flashes are not always enough for me too! not always you get people observing your signals and not every one wants to give you way, so I find myself pressing it twice quite often or SPORT mode and they can see me squeezing in

Yea, press the indicator stalk again when it's flashed three times...

Repeat until no longer required and you have made your intentions to the traffic known!!!

Or... press it down and it stays on until you turn it off!

Yea exactly, 4 is better, but 5 is too many if you accidentally hit the indicator.

Lol, i know it is a pretty minor thing, but all those little coding tweaks add up to quite a worthwhile improvement to the car!
