    Hi all, long time lurker first time poster... Wondering if some of you who are a bit more clued up out there can help me with something. Yesterday I was looking at a 2010 318i, looks decent with 55k on the clock, FSH etc., but one thing bugged the hell out of me.... when you get a problem with...

    Hi Again, Does anyone know how to disable the start/stop for good ? As you probably know it engages every time you restart the car to the stop default setting. Swamps :)

    Hi, Recently the start/stop ceased working and the engine just keeps running when previously it was ok. I suspect that it might just need a new battery but I wonder if anyone has any other suggestions? Thanks!!!

    Ok, I know this is quite trivial. The auto stop cuts in after a very brief stop - for example pulling up to reverse and its stopped before I've shifted from drive to reverse. No doubt all the other conditions apply - temperature, battery charge etc. I assumed there would be a timing change...

    I'm fitting an Xtrons head unit which means I have to lose the row of buttons beneath the climate control unit. I only have one button there which is the Auto Start/Stop OFF button which I use all the time as I hate this feature. I have 2 options: 1. Buy the ashtray kit and fit a long line...

    Hi all, Not long had my 320d. Really enjoying it (except the fact I didn't check it had cruise or not, which is annoying but my own stupid fault). Find the start/stop at traffic lights etc helpful in saving fuel, however it doesn't work all the time. Maybe a couple of times on a short...

    Hi folks, just thought I'd share this comedy experience... I was tinkering with the car on the drive today, I was going to have (yet another) attempt to get the diagnostics software working (but that's another story) so I leaned in and opened the diagnostics socket cover. As I did so the...

    Can the start/stop button be operated when driving? Just worried that the Auto Start/Stop disable button is above the regular start/stop button. If I am approaching somewhere where I know the auto start/stop will be a pain I would like to flick it off and don't want to accidentally turn the...

    Hi, I'm thinking about selling my 118d MSport. It's a 2008. Only problem is the Start/Stop hasnt worked for about the last 18 months. Also every now and then the clock and date will reset like the battery has went dead. Although it starts every time no problems at all. I don't want to sell the...

    I am on my fourth turbo car now and have always changed the oil twice the recommended and always allowed the turbo to slow before turning off the engine to preserve turbo life. With start/stop technology, I keep wondering if the engine could be shutting off with the turbo still spinning fast and...

    Hi very interesting question i think, i know the 4 pot diesel have this stupid start/stop that i deeply hate but do the 325d 330d and 335d engines have this. I understand that having 6 cylinders to crank is going to naturally be a royal PITA to start again and again and eventually be expensive...

    right last week i tried to start to start the car without the key in ignition by accident (not surprisingly with no success), but a few days i ago i put the roof down with my key as i walked to the car and got in, pressed the start stop button, and drove home. When i went to take the key out of...
