    Hi all, With the start stop switched on, my 2012 F10 occasionally goes into park at traffic lights and catches me out when I accelerate to drive off. It sometimes also happens even when the engine doesn't switch off. If I've moved the stick to the left so I'm in DS, the car stays in gear and...
