Default Things I would like to do....need suggestions

Here are some things that I would like to do with my 01 MT.

Forced Auto Stop....whenever I want

Control Assist...use more when I have a good charge

Eliminate Assist....when I want to save charge

In order to do these things do I need MIMA or are there other option?

Thanks

The other option is the CARD/CALPOD switch.
Of course your foot is still the main controller.

Now there is a 2nd option - The Mini BCM Intercepter, (MBI as I call it). Peter has just added comments on how to put a switch in it so that it wll disable assist/regen at will. Even on later cars and CVT's when the clutch switch won't. And it will act as a MIMA in the sense that you can turn Regen and Assist on and off as needed.

One short click <1s on assist button disables assist and another goes back to normal mode.
One short click <1s on regen button disables regen and another goes back to normal mode.

One medium click on regen button >1s <4s enables background regen and vice versa.
