About Cruise Control Units

A BMWcruise control unit is a component that is vital to the operation of a motor vehicle’s cruise control system. Cruise control, which is sometimes also described as speed control, is a system where the velocity of the vehicle is controlled automatically. The BMWcruise control unit does this by assuming control of the throttle (or accelerator) thus preventing the car from being driven at a speed that is greater than that which has been pre-set by the driver.

The BMWcruise control unit transfers the driver’s commands to other components in the cruise control system. This is usually achieved through the cruise control wiring. One of the components with which the BMWcruise control unit communicates is the cruise control actuator, which opens and closes the vehicle’s throttle to achieve and maintain the chosen speed.

Through careful use of a vehicle’s BMWcruise control unit a lengthy motorway drive can be made much less stressful and more comfortable. It can also reduce fuel use and emissions. Most importantly to some drivers, it can also eradicate the risk of a speeding ticket. However, if it is used incorrectly, such as failing to override it when the vehicle is rounding a bend, it can be hazardous.

As with most elements of operating the sophisticated parts of a modern motor vehicle, as long as the BMWcruise control unit is sensibly handled, it can be an invaluable aid to the driver.

BMW trivia

  • Think you know what BMW is an acronym of? If you answered Broke My Wallet, you’re definitely wrong. It really stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (which is Bavarian Motor Works in English).
  • The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
  • That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
  • The BMW M1 has a classic look, so it's no surprise that its designer also came up with some other amazing car designs. Giorgetto Giugiaro is also responsible for the DeLorean, the Beretta U22 Neos handgun, and the Nikon D4 camera! Although, he also designed the Yugo, commonly called the worst car that's ever been made.
  • The Cold War affected BMW sales so significantly that the company was nearly bought out by their arch-rivals Mercedes in 1959. A silent investor saved the company, but the rivalry between BMW and Mercedes Benz is ongoing.
