    That's how I like to do it too. It can be pretty smooth actually.

    Question

    ...do you's guy's know that by "very lightly" moving in the clutch lever... that the cruise dis-engages? You can't even call the action required... pulling-in.

    Because your not affecting the actual clutch operation.
    It's a recognition method for cruise disengagement BMW has built in to avoid brake action (and light) and the "OFF" selection.

    Try simply matching throttle to speed and taking this step, you'll be impressed.

    Did you ever get this sorted?

    Right on, John. You just need to barely move the lever: the clutch doesnít disengage, and you donít have to touch the throttle. Super smooth.

    That's how I do it and arrived at that method intuitively. Just the slightest pressure on the clutch lever and you're smoothly out. One of my major pet peeves on the slab is when folk tap the brake to get out of Cruise Control. Too many times I've seen this create a chain reaction of brake lights. Grrrrrrr......

    Just so you know in case you don't there is nothing necessary about engine braking when you cancel CC by rolling off--the trick is to roll-off then immediately return the throttle to where it was prior to rolling off--really it's one integrated action. It's all I ever do once I learned it. It's pretty much the same action I do for clutch-less shifting since I don't have Shift Assist Pro. It took a while to return the throttle just right but I can clutch-less shift with almost zero hitch in the get along bearing.
