Anyone know how the start stop works with the DSG?
On the manual the engine stops when you lift the clutch in neutral (I think) and then starts when you depress the clutch. This is good as you can easily choose not to have it stop by leaving your foot pressed on the clutch, but in the DSG there is no clutch (obviously).

In an Audi, it stops the engine when you come to a stand with your foot on the brake (put it in neutral and it'll start the engine). I imagine it'll be the same on a VW/Seat/Skoda.

I had it in my bmw, also my wifes ford ka.
Its quite normal once you get used to it.
Funny tho, the bmw version was very picky as to when it would kick in.
The ford version kicked in no matter what!
Normally they need the outside temp to be above a certain figure, the climate to be off, the engine to be hot, headlights off, etc, etc.

I wonder what restrictions the Seat system will have?

So what happens if you don't put it in neutral?

The engine will stop if you stay in D whilst stationary with your foot on the brake. Come off the brake and it'll start.

(Based on what an Audi does)
