I just don't like the Auto Start/Stop function so I disable it. The question is why do I have to remember to do it every time I start the car. Why can't it retain its last setting?

Then I just found this in the Owner's Manual: After every start of the engine using the Start/Stop button, the Auto Start/Stop function is in the last selected state.

What's going on here? Should I contact the service center?

Mine isn't -wonder if they changed this-after every start of the engine it resets (as it did in my r56) to default autostop start in operation. I actually find that fine but i know it annoys some! i'd assumed it was due to the emissions thing but stand to be corrected!

So it would seem the Owner's Manual is wrong. I wonder if there is any way to contact Mini about this?

There is a byte in the code that allows for default or remember-last-state upon start-up. BMW was sued with a class-action a while ago and now all the cars should have the code set to remember-last-state. The dealer should be able to fix it.
