RE: Permanently disable start & stop

There is a completely separate battery for this and brake energy harvesting is used to charge etc. I read an in depth review on the V40 R-Design that had all of the technical info. I'll try to find it again and link to it. The general consensus was negligible wear due to the gains in technology.
