From the BMWUSA website and posts here, it seems clear that active cruise control is not available as an option on the X5. Does anyone know why that is or if it will be available in the future? It is surprising. I have ACC on my 335i coupe and while it is ridiculously expensive, it is very convenient and works well.

I'm sure it'll eventually be worked in. I'm surprised it is not offered on the X5; it's a similar situation in Europe, so we're not technically being left out here.

If "Dynamic Cruise Control" is the same as "Active Cruise Control," it is currently being installed on UK bound X5 vehicles.

"Dynamic" cruise control is the name for BMW's standard cruise control. "Active" is the optional, extra-cost version that can automatically decrease your vehicle's speed if the system detects another vehicle in front of your vehicle.

In the US, that is. Dynamic Cruise Control is standard in most BMW NA models. However, it is extra cost in other countries. Active Cruise is yet a more expensive option above that.

Many people in the US don't realize how much standard kit we get in our cars. On the X3, "Business CD" might be standard here, but in Europe, there's an even cheaper head unit. We automatically always get the Professional sat nav if the option is ticked off, but there's "Business sat nav" and "Professional sat nav" in Europe.
