Yeah, that'd be nice. It's just a momentary switch, so from a technical perspective, it shouldn't be hard to rewire for the disable. I'm not terribly skilled at pulling apart switches, however (though I've done it), so I'll leave that to someone else to figure out, or better yet, to do for me!

The info is a bit sketchy though..... It's all about the quadrifoglio, and seems to be part of a tuning package.
In addition, start/stop is disabled on the quadrifoglio in race mode anyway, so the disable function is already potentially there.....
Different on the "standard" models.

Removing start stop is probably as simple as changing couple of bits in coding....if you have the right tool...bmw/audi world has been doing it for years in aftermarket...this platform is just too new...audi/bmw world has a whole coding community out there....because they sell so many cars there is also wide availability of aftermarket coding tools at more reasonable prices

Has anybody tried the multiecuscan tool for this? The list of supported functions says that it supports parameter setting for the Body Control Module (BCM) this is the module that reads the Auto Start / Stop button press.

yes. You can download the tool for free, and use it in simulator mode without the need to actualy connect to a car to see the possibilities.....

However, as said, for the giulia there is still a lot that needs to be added.

I have a paid version which I used for my previous Alfa, a 147 GTA.

The supported functions table on that page says that "CAN modules diagnostics" is not supported in the free version. Could that be why they are not showing for the Giulia? Or do functions showed up grayed out in the free version when they're not available?

Functions always show up, if available. Just some functions cannot be used in the free version, however, can always be used in "simulator" mode for look and feel ....
If a function is not there, it's not implemented yet..... The developer is continuously adding to the tool though, as you can see in the history.
I'm hoping a lot more will be available in the next version. I've always used the tool on my previous Alfa, and liked it a lot, also because you can exercise a lot of the actuators per computer for testing etc. and it's fairly cheap
