Coasting in Drive or Neutral... I personally don't see much difference in wear, as long as you don't get much slippage or stress on the clutch packs when getting back in gear... like XYZ says, from a stop, it's probably no big deal.

I drove a new MINI last month... in "Green" mode, it automatically goes into neutral when you let off the gas any time you're above 30 km/h. Kind of thumbs its nose at people who declare you will die a horrible death if you coast in neutral at highway speeds!
