Automatic entry/exit steering wheel

Is it just me that hates having to wait for the steering wheel to slowly adjust itself upon starting the car? I don't need it to go inside, and tilt up after I stop the engine, as I'm somewhat short and not fat at all.

Our 2007 750Li allows you to disable this feature via i-Drive (as did all our our Benzes who had this "fat person" setting.

Anyone know if I can stop it from going in/out and up/down upon starting and stopping the engine? It's so Lexus, and it really bugs me!

Thanks!

Yes, this setting can be changed via i-Drive

It doesn't really bother me too much in terms of wait but I'd also like it disabled... too much unnecessary work on the motors.

Just checked, no options in idrive for steering wheel except the steering wheel programmable buttons.

Really? Like the last post mentioned, and I've too tried so many times...cannot find it offered via i-Drive to disable!

If you've done it, or found it...please share!!!

It really annoys me, and I'm honestly waiting for it to break or get stuck 1/2 way.

My apologies... I couldn't find the setting in i-Drive either. I was confused with the "Last Position - deactivate" setting which does not seem to control the steering wheel position.

i guess things just move slower on this side of the valley. wherever it is that i am going, i am relatively sure it will still be there when i arrive. 2.6 seconds of steering wheel adjustment aside.
