Mein Auto: 2012 535i M-Sport

From what I've read, this is something that can be done, but I'm leary about doing this myself without first seeing how things are done.

If there is anyone in the Milwaukee area willing to code mine, I'd be interested in knowing.

Also, the speed in the digital display would be nice, and I have a 2011 Z4 that could use that as well.
Yes, you can change the default of the Auto Start/Stop to OFF. It will only turn ON by itself if you go to ECO Pro mode. Next time you start the car, A.S.S. will be OFF.

@DREAMCAR: Here are the settings for the spreadsheet:

NEW VALUE: aktiv
DEFAULT: nicht_aktiv
DESCRIPTION: Changes Auto Start/Stop default state to OFF

As everyone says, do it at your own risk... I already did this mod and it works as described.
