Distronic Cruise Control Anywhere but S Class?

I love the idea of the Distronic Cruise Control, but it's only available on the S Class.

Has anyone heard anything about this wonderful feature showing up on the E class or the ML's??

I know they're great cars, but that's more than I would want to drive -- but that a deal breaker feature.

Lexus offers it on the small RX SUV?? But who wants to be seen in that rather than an ML???

I have it on my SL55 and I love it. It makes motorway driving a breeze. Get it!

distronic plus is sweet. its kinda nerve racking at first to see a car slowing down to a stop in front of you, and trying not to touch the brakes. whats even more impressive is when 40% of brake power comes at you when someone cuts lanes, or slams on their brakes in front of you. 40% is a lot more than you think.

Well, if Distronic Plus is available on the E Class, that's as good a reason as I can think of to pass on the new ML or other lesser sleds.

Thanks
