Thanks for that. I have been noticing the car seems to have a few pointless features but haven't really picked on it on this forum because I can assume they could be useful features for a small selection of people.
The manual didn't really differentiate this feature from everything else with an * (asterisk) so I assumed it was a standard feature.
I guess fitting a remote start alarm will be the easiest way to get this feature then. I was trying to avoid doing this.
