Auto stop/start

Guys is there a way to cancel stop/start from being active every time you start the car?
Couldn't find anything in the manual, google search suggests in some Bmw's it remembers what mode it was in when the car turns off, mine is active every time i start even though i turned it off on my last journey.

As long as you are using the same key each time, pressing that button next to the start/stop should keep it off.

There is no need to deactivate it each time you start the car...

Wow..that's interesting...hmm. I'm at a loss. Honestly, I turned it off at the dealer, on the day of delivery, and it's been off since...

It might be different for the US cars in the way the start/stop button works.

US only feature. ROW resets on each start.

It can be coded to always be off when you first start the car (you can still turn it on by pushing the little button next to the start/stop button if you want) or to remember your last setting (US Cars are already set like this).

Both of these are in the FEM BODY module.

Always off when you start the car: Function is TCM_MSA_DEFAULT_OFF. Change it from "nicht aktiv" to "aktiv"

Remember last setting: Function is TCM_MSA_MEMORY. Change it from "nicht aktiv" to "aktiv"

*Note: These are for the F30, but should be the same for the F87.

Hi guys!

Is there a driving mode in which auto start/stop is off?
I remember that in my M235 auto start/stop was completly off whenever you selected sport, sport+ or traction mode.
Is it the same for the M2??

And yet in NA the mirrors don't fold...even though they can.

How hard would it be to get at least some consistency on these weird settings?

Yes, some of these changes are very strange. Are they afraid of lawsuits because people can't use the mirrors in low speed?
