The latter will place the 8AT into 'P' automatically.
Was being pedantic and pressing the "P" automatically, but now more so just pressing the Start/Stop push button. It means I don't exit (normally when on handsfree phone call) and I've stopped where my car is meant to be parked - and the ASS is active (thus gone into Ready mode), and go to get out and the car starts rolling forward because I forgot to shut the engine off.....

OK, bye.
Ok this I've never noticed and need to test...
I haven't worked out yet when I'm using the paddles to down gear, (say to overtake) how to put the car back into Auto mode?
