There is no button, but you still have to depress the brake to move it out of Park. And No, if you're driving you can't jam it into Reverse. I was reading some technical info on the trannies and its all electronic, so past a certain speed, it doesn't allow it.

I have had this Hamann knob on for years now. It matches the interior nicely and has a sportier look. I use Manual mode 99% of the time and have never had a problem.
