Pretty well proven to stop and start. Yes. I’ll agree with that statement.I saw in a review (I think it was for the 2021) they dinged it a bit for auto-s/s, because of the "jarring motion" from the boxer restarting.
Weird, I rode twin-boxer BMW motorcycles for some years, and it was a BIG factor on the R-twin-boxers, because it would sort of rotate the entire bike, just a bit, when you give it a bunch of throttle. You adapt pretty quickly to it, but if you sit there and rev the bike, you can see (and feel it if seated) it, looking at it straight-on.
Odd that I didn't think to equate the two, given that I was one that mentioned/shored-up this part, in the giant early 2020 discussion thread about it (started early, and went on forever, I assume that's the 100+ pages you mention, @chvvkumar ?), I feel like a goofball on that count, oops.
The eliminator is nice, although if they'd had the s/w button on the front of the digital console, to start, I doubt I would've purchased it.
@Legacydan I think that's in reference to actually turning off the car, say via a key-ignition, if you read more about that DOH-EV document, wherever that is. Auto-S/S is a completely different deal, and has been pretty well-proven, despite being incredibly annoying in some cars (say those with a big boxer engine... ).
Turning off the car (not what is referenced) vs. turning off the ignition are two different animals, and whether it’s done with 0s and 1s, or by turning a metal key back one notch to turn off the ignition electrical and associated fuel/air mixture systems, it’s all the same. It is basic electronics.
Believe whatever you will. ASS cuts off power from the battery to the ignition and fuel delivery. Otherwise the engine would not stop. Cutting off the ignition circuitry and stopping the engine from running, in whatever manner, whether keyed, electronic, or other means performs the same function. If it looks like manure, feels like manure, tastes and smells like manure, call it what you want. I aint stepping in it! 🤣
