Default Technology Package worth it?
Should I add the Tech Pack? I am only really interested in the Adaptive Cruise control. For those of you with experience using he adaptive cruise, is it worth it?

Adaptive cruise is sweet and so is auto high beams and auto wipers. I have 1 car with it and when I drive my other two without its annoying that I dont have the tech. The tech pack is a must for me.

I have it on the Mustang and it's great for daily driving. That being said, It's not great for modding the car. It adds extra hassle and will probably end up disabled. For a car/truck that I am going to look at modding with power/bumpers, I would skip it entirely.

Not worth it for me. I never use cruise control. I pay attention to the road and don't need a lane keeping system or minder. I can turn my wipers on whatever speed they need to run and I can also brighten and dim my lights as needed. Am I missing something here?

Thanks for the input guys, I think I'm gonna pass on the Tech package. While I could see how nice it would be to have the features, i host don't think it's worth the added cost when all I really care about is the adaptive cruise co tell, and even then I don't find my current normal cruise co tool to be so inconvenient that I want to pay for adaptive.

Dont knock it until you try it. When youre tired as shit at night the auto highs are fantastic because they turn off when you might forget for on coming traffic or will turn on when you forgot to turn them back on. The auto wipers are nice because they go to what speed is needed in rain and snow so you can concentrate on your driving instead of your wipers. They also turn on if you ever get splashed or get blasted by big rigs on wet roadways.

Trust me, when you use it and get used to it it sucks not having.
