    Well, I can confirm that it won't go off. After coding and letting the car go to sleep, it was still there. Turned off the whole energy efficiency program display (ADP channel), which removed that menu from the MFI, but the gear suggestion was still there. I played for a while with the engineering menu in the MMI but couldn't find anything that would bring the up an "instrument" MMI menu where this setting supposedly resides. I'm beginning to wonder if this isn't an emissions thing, where once it's turned ON, you can't turn it back OFF for "legal" reasons. IE if the car is tested this way at the EPA, and they shift using the MFI indications, you can't sell it without them...? I'm not 100% positive I didn't have the suggestions when I got my car.
