Can anyone confirm (or deny) that this is standard equipment in the M50 in the UK (it's listed under the Driving Assistant Professional optional package):

Driving Assistant Professional is a camera and radar-based driver assistance system that offers optimum comfort and safety during monotonous or complex driving situations. It includes:

Active Cruise Control with approach control regulates the distance from the vehicle in front using radar sensors in the bumper. It automatically maintains distance and queue speed in stop-and-go traffic and traffic jams down to a complete standstill.

This suggests that it's not part of the 'Driving Assistant' standard package. I can't believe the standard M50 (or any i4 for that matter) doesn't have it.

The front radar which is needed ACC is not standard. It only gets added with the driving assistance professional package.

Thank @Accident . Looking again at the list of Standard equipment on the M50, this is in the list:

Driver Assistance
  • Reversing Assist Camera
  • Cruise Control with brake function
So a form of TACC is there as standard. I have a feeling that the driving assistance professional package adds the ability to kepp distance at all speeds, right to a stop - more research needed I think.

In Finland there is option 9QY (standard both for idrive40 and M50) that allows to activate active cruise control after delivery (with cost of course..). So required hardware should be there, this was also confirmed by dealer and bmw group finland, via mail. Apparently this has been option for example for X5 already. But I agree that active cruise control should be standard anyways.

Cruise Control with brake function only means that it will keep your speed constant also on a downhill road, not that it will brake when a car in front of you brakes. That is TACC. For Germany there is a separate 500€ option "Aktive Geschwindigkeitsregelung mit Stop&Go-Funktion" (S05DF) that is giving just that.

It's a £1,900 option in the UK as it only comes with the driving assistance professional package. I just think it's really bad that it's not included as standard.

In the UK (for my spec at least) it looks like it can be added via online purchase after the car arrives. All the hardware appears to be there so it just needs activated. I'm hoping an FSC code will be available to activate it for less than what BMW want.
