I know I'm going to make the list here, but I'm going to ask it anyway.

What exactly is overrun?

Nah overrun. I've heard journos use it when they describe things like 'Exhaust crackle on the overrun', I know it has something to do with shifting.

OK. That's (I believe) when you lift-off the throttle (while still in gear). My MINI makes all kinda pops and burbles if I'm in sport mode

No money shift is different. It is when you end up in a wrong (lower) gear while down-shifting. Most 'popular' occurrence is downshifting from 5th to 2nd instead of 4th.

Have often thought about the 5-2 money shift... You'd seriously have to have some kind of brain damage to pull it off.

Not really. Not that it happens very often, it usually happens during spirited drives or at the track.

May be a stupid question, but it's a real question. =/ I didn't know where to post it, so here goes (and yes I tried looking through the manual):

What's this button for (serious)?

Auto stop start. Keep that light on at all times lest you want to be driving a M3 Prius Edition
