iTrader: (3) do you stand auto start/stop?

had my M for service, got a '13 X1 28i xdrive as a loaner.
I drove this car on a daily commute + long drive for 4 days, and wow this is nasty...

how do you stand auto start/stop?
I have a 09, so mine did not have this feature, and thank GOD my car doesn't have this and i don't envy those cars with this tech not even a bit!
Like many magazines said, this is way too rough and feels "out of place".

and YES there's a auto start/stop defeat button, but what's the point when you have a pretty useless feature and you have to cut it off every time you drive?
In a long run, i'm pretty sure this will have somewhat of a negative effect on the engine.
