I just can't wait to have to fix the variable radar controlled cruise controls. I already have done a number of what BMW calls parktronic, collision avoidance system problems. having a body shop you just can't avoid collision avoidance problems.

Of course there could be pages of software/hardware features to stability programs including four wheel traction systems with yaw sensing. Upshift delays due to curve recognition programs communicated between ESP and ETC. Downshift strategies for cruise control in hills. it is often more than just the pieces. With the monitoring that is happening every year they think of some new way of using it.

Such as low tire pressure systems that use already available wheel speed signals to understand that one wheel is smaller and by definition low on air.
