Start stop in US

One other thing - it is very unlikely the US M3 would get start/stop because the United States EPA test does not "give credit" for start stop - the test they use apparently doesn't have that many stops, or perhaps none at all - I am not entirely certain.

Of course start stop would raise your actual mileage, assuming you use it, but this doesn't help the window sticker or help BMW NA reduce their fines.

I suspect the European test does give reasonable credit for start stop or else the technology wouldn't be on various BMW models.
