I cancel the stop/start immediatly on starting the car. In my opinion, a most stupid function

Quite cheap, Bosch batteries and they stock ones specifically for stop/start vehicles.

No coding needed. Essentially the same as getting a flat battery.

I would only ever enable stop start on a nice v8 with a straight pipe exhaust so when the engine restarts, everyone at the traffic light gets a nice wake-up, haha!

Sounds like it, my 2011 GTI is still doing fine on it's original battery (but no stop start function and it's only just got to 50k km)
