Thanks for the info. I didn't realize it has been installed with manuals before. I guess I assumed it was a DCT-only feature in their quest to make it mimic an automatic.

I can see where manual drivers just wouldn't want to deal with the added hassle of rolling back on hills and grow to like HSA as a result (as Bimmer Bob seems to have), but it should at least be something that can be turned off if desired.
