Question Climate Control Question...does anyone know?

Hi all,
Is it me or...?
So, the 328iX is great. But while comparing it with my 2011 X3 (which are by the way, VERY similar in terms of interior design, IDrive,...) I find a couple of issues:
1- 328iX 's Climate Control is ALWAYS set ON by default. Is this right? Whenever I turn on the car, the climate is ON regardless of its last status. In my X3 (and all the other cars I've ever had), the rule of climate stated: the climate's status always relects its last status before engine shut off. That means, if I leave the climate on before shutting off the engine, the climate is on next time I turn on the car. If I turn it off before engine shut off, then it shouldn't turn on next time I start the car; should it? this is certainly the case with my X3 and all the other brand cars I've ever owned. Why is this 328iX different?
2- The dual-climate control can not be set to mono-climate. In my X3, I have an "ALL" button that I can select the overall climate control to be synched and unified. It appears that this is not the case in 328iX and I will always have a different climate (left and right). Is this correct?

I appreciate any feedback.
Cheers

I thought it was really weird that the f30 did not have the dual-side-sync or last-state function. I'd just leave it off all the time if I could. My ac stinks like wet rag.

Yep. It's how it's programed. I'm sure that someone can code it out though.

I do it myself, or you can look for friends that are willing to code for you in your area:

An ALL button sure would be nice. I always feel so lazy when I think that but it's a first world problem that sometimes indulge.

I think I'm already over the "ALL" issue. Although it is a short coming in my opinion. My X3 has this capability and I just don't see the reason why they haven't incorporated it into a "newer" BMW. That's a very convenient option.
The bigger point for me right now is the fact that the climate control is set as "ON" by default!!! Very stupid and doesn't make sense.
