FWIW, I find the ACC brilliant. It doesn't absolve you from monitoring the situation around you and taking control if needed, but it gives you plenty of warning, and starts braking immediately if someone cuts in front of you too close etc - very good imo. Stress free motorway driving! Only had to touch the pedals once on my trip up the M1 today, when a moron in a BMW decided to cut me up. The car was braking long before I got my foot to the brake anyway, and to be honest if I had done nothing I think it would have handled it without an issue, but I stuck my foot down on the brake too just to be sure!
What if I want the better socket and the thingy?
This is my order .. ACW3SPX7
For hooning about in the BMW would be ace. BUT, I need to live with this new car for a few years minimum every day, rain, wind, SNOW and sun. The BMW had poorer build quality, much more road noise, looks fugly as said and only really does one thing right - the hooning drive.
Even the BMW sales chap said that all sales staff take it home for one night only because they can't stand it for any longer!!
Plus us you can't get adaptive cruise on it.
