Does anyone have additional details regarding this "feature" on the RS? On some vehicles it can be disabled, and it appears there is a button that allows you to turn it off, but I'm curious if there will be a setting where it can be turned off by default.
It looks like this button is to do exactly that. Although I doubt you will be able to default it to off. Likely will have to be turned off every time, since it is about increasing fuel mileage.
Also, someone in the ST forum posted the following from the 2015 Euro Focus manual that talks about how the thing works.
I was a little bummed about it, but reading through that I don't think it will be an issue. Since I rarely put the car in neutral and take my foot off the clutch anyway while driving. It will take a bit of getting used to when attempting to warm up the car though, having to remember to turn it off. Also, I think this pretty much guarantees that the "honk, honk" when you get out of the car while running will happen too..
