2012 550i Questions

Does the 2012 550i have "Start Stop" technology? If so, how is it activated?

In addition, Does "Sport +" offer tighter chasis handling than "Sport"? Or does it just turn off traction control and turn on dhp or whatever that is?

Thanks for the clarifications!

Thanks very much!

I would not mind one stiffer, flatter-cornering M-Sport mode beyond Sport and Sport +... .

I think M sport Modes are exclusive to M series. I read somewhere that M5 has two M modes

Not sure either way but I thought it was standard across the range.
