Arctic cruise control

Just swapped into a 2014 550xi. How do I tell if it has active cruise control, and if so, how do I use it? I have it almost fully loaded and can't seem to find it.

2011 vs 2014 550x msport

Would love to get some thoughts on the switch? Anything on drive ability and handling? Losing the dynamic handling but does that make a big difference. Also, any differences in the tires (ie fewer...

The only issue with the m5 is the lack of all wheel drive. I hear the common refrain on it being a non issue with snow tires. That won't work for me in the northeast. Just worry about build quality...

Sounds like those who moved from the 2011 550x m sport are happy with their 2014 550x even without the DHP? Any other positives or negatives? And most importantly, are the tires better (ie fewer...

2014 550 m sport vs 2014 Audi S6 vs 2014 MB E63 AMG

Considering all three right now. Feel like the e63 is the best of the the three, but most expensive. Definitely need all wheel drive, so the m5 is out. Seems like many people believe the s6 sits...

Extended Warranty

Does have anyone have any views on the gold upgraded extended warranty? And any idea on what the dealer cost is? My 550x has never had any major issues, so not sure if it's worth it.

Drive ability in Snow

I live in new England, and have been considering the new m5. I'm in a 2011 f10 550 awd which I love. But even my 550 has some problems in the snow. Is it crazy to even consider the m5 if I use it...
