i have a new 2012 535i, super fun. i have researched the auto stop issue online and found 2 people who said their dealer set it to "always off". both dealers were in australia, not sure why the Ozzies can do it. My USA dealer said it can't be permanently shut off, but i am skeptical. Please don't tell me about the "off" button and it's orange light under the start button. i want the car to stay running, period. any help out there?
