I was always tempted by this adaptive cruise, and so I test drove a Volvo V60 D5 the other week. Hated it.

Always seemed to be a little "slow" to react (I guess trust comes with time), and always seemed to leave a gap large enough for 87 BMW 330d's to fit it.

Maybe BMW's implementation is different, but from the experience I had in the Volvo, I learned not to specify a car with it. If it comes as std (like the Volvo) fine .. but I don't think I could pay for it.
