It seems almost calming to be waiting at a red light without the engine just wanting to go. I also think the Auto-H makes the ASS even better. Pull up to stop somewhere, go ahead and let off the brake, engine goes off, and then everything pops back to life when you're ready to go.
Couldn't agree more. It sounded like a huge deal and concerned me before we picked up our 535i. However, it ended up not being a big deal at all.
