The best part of the Prestige package, for me, has surprising been the top view camera. Its been very useful when backing into parking spots or the garage. I also like the HUD. However, if I had to do it again, Id probably go with a S5 P+ vs an A5 Prestige (not quite apples to apples dollar wise, but would close the gap a little on pricing).

For me, I trust it to be able to brake, but sometimes too abruptly and unpredictably. Sometimes it just slams on the brakes to a stop and leaves quite a bit of space in between, other times it brakes gently. The Drive Mode settings for ACC is only for how aggressive the car accelerates, it has nothing to do with how aggressive it brakes. I wish there's a setting for that. Until then, I'm just worried I'll get rear ended. I tend not to use it too often in traffic jams because of that.

When I drive I look at traffic beyond the car in front of me and react to them instead of just the car immediately in front of me. ACC only reacts to the car immediately in front and that's a shortfall in my book. It's not good for defensive driving and can lead to too abrupt braking and getting rear ended.
