Stop and Go setting

I believe I was told by the SA that there is no "stop and go" on 535d models since the diesel engine could not tolerate the on and off function. Does anyone know is this is true?

I would literally walk away from that dealer. In fact I would literally run away. What gives you to lie to a customer to sell a car on the lot.

I'm confused by your question. The Stop&Go feature is just part of Active Cruise.

This is from BMW's website:
Quote:
Relaxed driving even in heavy traffic: Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function keeps you at a constant distance from the vehicle ahead at all times. If the traffic comes to a halt, the system applies the brakes until the vehicle comes to a standstill and then automatically moves on as soon as the road is clear.
I have it on my 535d and it is a great feature.

If you're asking about auto start/stop then find a new SA. Walk up to any US spec 535d or 535dx and look at the start button and you'll see the button "off" button underneath to disable auto start/stop.



If you're asking about stop and go active cruise control, that's an available option on the 535d and 535dx too.
