Cruise Control

Hello

When I turn off the car and I start it again, I have to re-enable the cruise control. In my previous 320 I didn't have to do this. Is this also possible in the X3 F25?

Best Regards

I believe that all recent cars have a double action/interlock to allow Cruise Control to be active. ie it can't be operative by one accidental action.

Good safety thinking to me.

On a related note. It seems the RES button on my BMW X3 35I does not behave the way it should.
For example, let's say I set the cruise control to 80MPH, then I brake and want to go back to the speed that is set. I press the RES button and it actually shuts down the cruise control (the green icon disappears from the dashboard) and does not resume the speed.
It seems it behaves exactly like the ON/OFF button.
Anyone experiencing the same issue?

No, mine resumes the previous speed. You have a problem there

Agree - it should resume as long as you did not come to a full stop.
