    I currently have a vehicle with the level 2 ADAS (lane keeping, adaptive cruise, etc). But I find in many instances, that I like to use regular cruise control.

    I ordered my Tesla with EAP and know it will be better than my current car. However, will I still have the option to use regular cruise control when I want to?

    Nope - at the very least you will have to use TACC.

    Just out of curiosity, during which instances would you rather use regular cruise control over traffic aware cruise control? Is it out of fear of phantom braking?

    You can use TACC as a regular cruise control, just don't drive on the tail of the car on front of you. Which you wouldn't be using cruise control anyway.

    Just think of it as a regular cruise control that keeps you from running into the car in front. It can operate without lane guidance.
