Manual states to turn OFF car when idling at stop...

Anyone actually tried this. I was very surprised the manual stated that its best to turn off car when stopping and then back on before acceleration.... A joke right?

I remember reading my 335i manual and don't recall this

can you put up a screenshot or a page reference?

I assume it meant when you want to, for example, park real quick to go back inside and grab sometimes; not for when you're at a red-light.

if it's the former, you should turn it off; if you're at a light, you're fine.
