Ski pass through is useful.

But yeah the stop start scared the crap out of me after dropping into neutral at a light. First I thought I stalled, and after that I had a moment of complete uncertainty as to how much throttle to give the car, etc. It might make more sense in the DCT because you guys don't use a clutch pedal anyway. But in a manual it really makes almost not sense at all.

I question the extra wear and tear on the starter module as well.
