BMW put in a heavy duty starter for the auto start and stop application. Chances are, the starter will out last your car. ASS have been in use in Europe for years with no reports of wide spread starter failure problems.
As for the people who look at you when the ASS is activated and automatically starts up, they are simply amazed at the level of technology of your BMW
