I think this is the most insane features ever put on a car as a default mode. I don't live in or drive in the city so the feature is utterly senseless for me and actually dangerous as some have mentioned if I pull up to a stop sign to cross a highway, for example. I can't believe they don't have it as an optional setting rather than the default, especially if one wants to pretend they have a Prius or whatever and be in Eco Pro mode all the time, then they would love this feature. I hate it and am in the habit of hitting the button upon starting the car, but it's super annoying like if I valet park and pick it up and the valet's get all freaked out because it shuts itself off and then they panic and hit start again, thereby shutting off the car completely, and on and on. What the heck was BMW thinking on this one???
