Default Auto Start - Turn off?

How can I make the "auto start" feature default to OFF?

My thought was to keep it off so as to save on wear and tear of the starter. Ive heard they can be $5K to replace.

Thoughts?

If you mean the stop/start system and can it be permanently disabled, then yes, it can.
There is a thread around here somewhere about how to do it on a MY2016 F-Type, I've searched but I can't find it, but it is a very easy and simple fix.
