I wash my own!

I would have to wait for an hour for someone to wash it, so I might as well take the hour and wash it myself.

In the winter, I may have someone else wash it for me though.

Well that was a figure of speech. I should have said "I've heard LOTS of complaints about it", especially when the feature was first introduced last year when the 2012 models were released.

Because noone likes it! Thought they would at least improve it so the car doesn't shut off when you pull up to a stop sign for 2 seconds.

Auto Start/Stop

I have a 2012 5 series with the auto start/stop feature. It's the one feature of the car I hate most. I'm wondering if BMW made any changes to this feature for 2013. Can you disable it...

Dot

Whenever I engage cruise control, a dot usually appears on the bar on the dashboard that shows the amount of miles you can go with the current tank of fuel. Anyone have any idea what the dot means?
