    On today's 2 hour drive I found myself wanting to disable EAP without having to touch the brake, basically anticipating something (tolls) or wanting to pass and it felt weird to tap the brakes as the people behind me would see it. My previous car had controls for this on the wheel so it was easy. Also, would be nice to disable autosteer put leave cruise on without jerking the wheel. Is this possible?

    single tap up with the right stalk turns it off

    Amazing what you can learn by reading the owners manual.

    I have read it, multiple times, months ago, should probably walk through it again though. It's kind of "scary" the only info they give you when you pick up the car is how to enable it...

    Careful, reading and owners manual?, you admit to asking for directions and your "Man card" could be revoked!

    This action bugs me too...it's wholly counterintuitive to flip the stalk up (potentially into Reverse) while careening along at 70-80-90mph.

    There is no way the car will engage the reverse gear while traveling at speeds

    I did accidentally put my car into neutral while driving down the highway. It didn't seem to have any problem going back into drive at speed. I'm not inclined to test reverse though. :D

    Oh I get it; that action is just counter-intuitive (IMO) so it's reasonable that the OP had not even thought to attempt it as a means to disengage EAP.

    Worked great on the way back home, much better than the brake

    Easy. Turn/torque the steering wheel enough to disengage autosteer. TACC will continue.

    Don't feel bad..when I asked how to disengage during the walk thru, they claimed (incorrectly) that the only way to disengage was with the brake. Also, the behavior changed slightly with a software update. Originally it was, "While on TACC, press up on right stalk to disengage" but while NOT in TACC, press up went to Neutral, with no warning. They fixed that so now it takes a long press to get to Neutral, TACC or not, and it gives 3 beeps when it does so.

    Interestingly, on the X pressing Down on the right stalk takes you to Neutral without any beeps. Guess what happens when I switch from driving my 3 to my wife's X? Every Single Time.

    I've figured that one out -- I was hoping there was one with the stalk that didn't require me to fight the car. ;)

    Haven’t tried yet, but maybe stalk up followed immediately by stalk down.

    There are only two ways I know of to disengage AP while leaving TACC active.

    1) Tweak the steering wheel enough to disengage AP.
    2) Smash the go-pedal to accelerate to over 90 mph.
