Wonder if you good people on the other side of the pond know anything about this, I was reading on a different forum a post from an Audi tech that explained how the Start-Stop Feature could be turned off as default with an OBD2 scanner. Really interesting, don't have my new ride yet but plan on trying this after it arrives. Here's a link for the original post; http://www.audizine.com/forum/showt...as-Default?p=11729120&viewfull=1#post11729120 If anyone is able to try or confirm please let us know. Here is a copy of the post; Hey guys, was messing around with the scan tool on my car. I was able to turn off the start/stop feature (since I think it is annoying as well). It will remain off even if you press the button for start/stop. I also eliminated the seat belt warning as well since I think it is ridiculously loud on our cars. It is in OBD - ECM - ADAPTATIONS. Hope this helps!
