disable the awd on a 550xi

i read on on a 335xi you can disable the awd, making the car rwd, as desired. im not SURE that its true... but i did read it.
that said, is it possible on a 550XI? anyone know or try?
this would have a major effect on weather i get the 550i or 550xi.

No idea where that was posted. I know the new x-drive systems disable the front transfer case above 70-ish making it RWD at high speed. I've never heard of a manual over-ride.

On the e90 you have to pull fuse 26 and it does work but your gauge cluster will light up like crazy and your wipers wont shut off:
