Thanks for all the replies. I feel a little more reassured. Not being able to use basic cruise control/auto pilot with my family in the car would be a huge problem.
My mate took delivery of his M3LR yesterday - and it didn't come with any USB ports nor wireless charging! He's furious, wasn't notified in advance. They've said they'll retrofit once the parts come into stock, ETA 1-2 months.
This semi-conductor shortage is mad.
EDIT: Brother in law collected his M3 SR at 9am this morning - just spoken to him and nothing missing for him.
It has happened in my previous GTI/R VW's and handful of times but never at 70mph, mainly around town caused by a plastic bag/crips packet. My X3 has basic cruise control +/- which doesn't cause these random episodes.Phantom braking on older cars is mostly down to radar cruise, the same thing can and does happen in any car with radar cruise. Radar has pretty poor vertical resolution so can pick up gantries/bridges as 'something' and then the camera see's it's shadow and suddenly agrees there may well be something there so slams on the anchors. Will happen in any radar cruise car.
I'm extremely concerned with continuing my order given that we travel with our 8 month old child in the back - apparently it happens when you're not using autopilot etc?
I’ve only once had any kind of phantom braking (and it’s wasn’t anything like an emergency stop). Had my model 3 since launch in 2019. It’s totally over-blown.
It literally makes no difference to that? Do you drive with your left foot over the break pedal?
