If what BMW is doing is the same thing as coding the ASS memory function on, then yes, switching to ECO PRO mode will turn ASS back on regardless of the current ASS setting.

I've coded the TCM_MSA_MEMORY option to activ. With ASS off, switching to ECO-PRO turns ASS on, but switching back to comfort, ASS gets switched off again. So, it looks like it remembers the setting for comfort and sports mode, but turns ASS on for ECO PRO mode, which kind of makes sense.

But, we really won't know for sure until someone has BMW make the change on their car and see how it behaves. Has anyone done that yet?
