If the car in front slows down to a stop the ACC will stop your car. If the car in front is stationary when detected, the ACC ignores it.

I have no way of conclusively proving it, but I would say that it seems to interfere with speed traps! Not sure about the detectors.... :)

It's not meant to detect stopped vehicles, but it should detect them when they are slowing down.

ACC takes a little bit of getting use to, but ai wouldn't be without it now.

Back to the OP - I'd like normal tyres with spare. Also more info on the HUD for revs but more importantly signal indicators! :)

Yes - this is fixed with the very latest software release. You also get a 'jazzier' MPG readout with the new version.

Not sure about the presets specifically, however if the iDrive is rebooting they'll probably have to replace the whole CiC unit. This happened to me.
