I just leave my air on auto and the circulation on ( A ) and it stays there everytime I start up, what is funny though, is that you cant leave the aircon off, everytime I restart my car, the aircon is back on again. Weird?

Maybe a trip to the Dealership, doesn't sound right, my settings always stay as I left them, excluding having it on or off..

Just discovered tonight that if you turn 'auto' off on your air con, once you turn car off and back on again the air will stay off. YAY Me = 1

Easy as, if you run your air in Auto like I normally do, all you have to do is press the auto button, to turn auto off (puts it into manual mode) and then keep depressing the lower/off fan speed button and it turns the unit off.
Next time you start the car it will be off.. :-)

It's on for me even in non auto and I've flicked it down to off. Every time I switch it on, boom- on one annoying bar

Actually I stand corrected... this morning it was on again and I was all GRRRRRR. I did it last night and turned the car off, but didnt get out and lock it and it was off when I started it up again, this morning after being locked up over night, it was on again, sorry for the false alarm..
That is another annoying thing, to put right next to the unable to change temperate as one zone

Whatever setting with the air circulation I leave it set to (usually 1 bar) when I switch off the car for the day, it starts the same when I turn it on in the morning. Just plain air flow blowing out without a/c on or recirculation.

This was the same for my E90.

its a feature required to recirculate the air. i just leave mine on 1 or off with the air con button off so when i start it next time, its just blowing air at lowest level. I also close the vents that face me as the driver and allow it to spray wherever else it wants to

Can I ask a simple question... what is the deal with wanting the HVAC system switched off all the time?

It is designed to work and give the most comfortable air change to the car, so why want it off? As others have said, you can run it at a minimum level, if for some reason you don't want (or like) a near flawless climate control in the cabin.

I still can't believe they removed this feature. What is the logic behind it? This is one thing that I would PAY to be coded in!
