Got one of these this morning: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002252098223.html?spm=a2g0s.12269583.0.0.3aca12c7cdJEQ7

They seem to be quite popular on the R forums and I thought it's worth a punt for £12.

It's supposed to remember the last setting and not throw up stop/start disabled messages like you get if you disconnect the battery wire. I won't have a chance to fit it until the weekend but I'll report back once it's in.

Works great. Took just a few minutes to fit, though I watched Humble Mechanic's video on how to fit it first because I was scared of breaking the trim: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcBfEQ8DaKg

It has three modes, memory so it remembers the last stop/start setting, always off on startup, and bypass so it behaves like stock. I found this out from a thread on the R forums as the device didn't come with any instructions. Doesn't throw up any warnings. 

One of the simplest mods you can do and a no brainer for £12.

Thanks for that reassuring report. I just need to decide in next few days whether to order one or get it turned off via coding. Unfortunately the discount you got was removed the other day so I think it’s back to £18. Hardly the end of the world !
