Adding to the list of manufacturers :
Volvo, Mini, VW, ... well, just about all of 'm.
Not just on small diesels BTW - you could get a 3.0L BMW diesel with start stop system.
It's not mainstream at all among American or Japanese manufacturers :/
I have a ton of respect for BMW (really German manufacturers in general) as they really pack a ton of sophisticated stuff into their drivetrains, I hope this makes the Japanese consider upping the level of tech in their engines!
