Auto stop-start : mine restarts when the car IN FRONT OF THE CAR IN FRONT starts - how does it see it when I can't!!!! ‼🤔

Interesting stuff, DomesticExtremist.

I shall now set myself the task of fiddling with the aircon to try and get start/stop disabled! ☺

There are sensors at the front of the car, also used for emergency braking & adaptive cruise control.

With the windscreen wipers on, even intermittent, when you select reverse (e.g. to park), the rear wiper is also activated.
Neat.

I stopped behind a car today and the start/stop didn't kick in. It's quite warm and I noticed the outside temp was a few degrees higher than the aircon setting.

I increased the aircon to match the outside temp - and the start/stop sprang into action and cut the engine.

Thanks DomesticExtremist, I've learnt something new! 🙂

Things I didn't know :

Front and rear daytime running lights are on, but trailer lights are not.
They come on, when the headlights are switched on (manually or automatic)
And the trailer lights are controlled by the CANBUS system also.
In case of failure, the message is on the display between the speedo and revcounter

Navigation also has something I didn't know.
When driving over a country border, the speeds are indicated in a popup... and you have to click this to see the route again
But it doesn't show the max speeds with a trailer, Even if you click the option : Trailer in the navigation menu

Did you know : When you have your hazardlights on...
and choose left or right indicator...
the indicators have priority over the hazardlights ,
indicators off... then the 4 hazardlights come on again untill you press the central button.

It is not so neat if it is frozen to the rear screen, I have disabled it in the menu before the frosts come.

If you flick the DSG lever to the left and use the manual gear option then change up and change down arrows will appear next to the M and gear number

When back on the right the car drops back into auto mode regardless of which manual gear you were in, so can switch between manual and auto at any speed

In the FR , I have 2 paddles on the steering wheel.
Just click down, and the DSG is in manual M , for a minute or so, then back to D or E or S when you are not shifting up yourself.
I like this option on the highway, when driving with a trailer.
I don't use the manual side of the gear selector.
Click one gear down, before flooring the accelerator , build up some revs before overtaking.
The engine responds quickly , you cant over rev... then it's in automatic again, into the next gear.
