i just had mine disabled!! found the guy in Slovenia (im from Croatia) but its so easy to do if you have VAGS cable or OBDeleven. I did that and TJA, TSR, locking when engine running, rear DLR and some more for 200eur in 2h time... im realy happy :) oh yeah...seat belt and boot opening/closing warning tones

I've had start/stop on my last two cars which had manual gearboxes, the start/stop only worked when you took the car out of gear and applied either the foot brake or handbrake, which is typically when you know you're going to be stuck at the lights for some time. Happy days that works great.

It is starting to drive me mad in the Kodiak though and I've decided it must be because the logic is the same as the manual gearbox cars. Couldn't the logic be changed for the DSG version so that start/stop only works when you apply the handbrake.

It IS, as far as I am aware an EU 'Nanny State' directive that S/S is 'auto on'.

Great idea! Can you please convince the MPs in parliament who seem to be trying to impose the other option? 😩

Now the Chamber roof is leaking the tossers can't 'play' until Monday & Mrs May is due in Brussels on Tuesday.
The other point is that all the politicians fannying about trying to come up with some fresh plan, seem to have forgotten that 27 other countries have to UNANIMOUSLY agree to our new plan. FAT CHANCE!
So I am betting we crash on the 12th!

You'll probably get used to it. My last car was my first with this feature and it really took me a while until I was comfortable with it. I barely ever notice it now.

Note that you can disable it with the press of a button on the dash (although it doesn't "stick" the next time you start the car).

I've been reliably told by a mechanic friend (Audi experienced, not Skoda) that in new vehicles they will disabling the turn off.
I don't know when they will bring it in though.

So make the most of it if you have it!
