Turned it off permanently? How do you do that?

On my 7.5 I just pushed the button so the light went off... it stays off until I decide to re-activate it.

Oh, OK. That's the same in the mk 8.
I thought you somehow permanently disabled it so it didn't come on after you switched ignition off and on again.

It doesn't... as I said it only comes back on if I decide to switch it on.

Even after ignition off/on it still stays off.

Auto-hold is the one function I turned-off as soon as I bought my car, just can't see the need for it with a DSG box.

What do you use then just the handbrake then drive off to release it ?

Footbrake and parking brake for when actually parked , just like people did in years gone by with automatics I'd guess.

Personally as someone with their first auto car ever, i use auto hold.

Fred I only just discovered that when you put the parking break on at a standstill that when you drive it automatically releases it 😂. I was pushing it down to drive off every time.
