    Ok, I didn’t know that. On Mrs L's Mini, it has to be switched off each time just like my Mercedes.

    I've never driven a car with stop/start that by default is switched off. Maybe the earlier ones were?

    My Audi S5 stop/start is setup so it remembers the last status it was in upon restarting the car. I tend to have it in the off position and the car remembers it was off, I can also configure the lit indication on the button to be either on or off dependant on status.

    Yes but we all know what VAG policy (allegedly) is on emission rules and regulations!

    Sounds like they will struggling to meet the EU's new fleet emissions of 95g per kilometre by 2021, which is a big part of their market.

    Actually you can switch it off permanently, just disconnect the sensor on the negative post of the starter battery (2 small wires), I have been driving my C Class coupe 2012 CGI petrol with the sensor disconnected for the last 6 months, it has just past it`s MOT with sensor disconnected. there is no EML on dash, the stop/start symbol on dash stays yellow. the cars drives as normal other than you loose brake hold, for me the loss of brake hold was no issue. I also own a 2015 SLK, have disconnected sensor on that car.
