This tech is plain silly for the M3 and we all know well that this is just a showoff annoyance for EPA standards.

I'd use that feature if i had a Toyota Camry (if they have the feature) as a daily Driver.
Erm, yes it does. Whether it's of significance to the owner is another matter. Based on my usage of a tank a week, and stop/start improving my economy by 1-2mpg (from my own experimentation), I would be saving approx. 3-4 tanks of fuel a year; insignificant to some, but if I can save, why not, it's a months worth of fuel at the end of the day.
