congrats looks great. You can get the auto stop/start changed to last setting at the dealer or code it yourself.

I spoke to the dealer about it, and they told me they recently stopped doing this. I asked if other dealers would do it, and they told me "maybe ... but word from on high is that dealers shouldn't do it, since if every customer did it, it'd invalidate the mpg figures on the sticker."

I guess it's not that hard to just manually turn it off. May see if I can find an independent BMW service/repair outfit who can do it for me, one of these days. It doesn't detract from my love of the new vehicle, but this is not customer-driven thinking on BMW's part (either the ASS technology or the policy to make it difficult to change).
