Cruise Control

Okay I searched for the topic did not find the answer I needed. Now I figured out how to use the cruise control on my 323is by pushin the cruise control handle back torwards the cluster. My question is, why isn't there a light on the dash(instrument cluster) that tells you that it is on or off?

Because the BMW design team decided it was not necessary, I guess.

Because the system is always on, its either activated or not.. but its always on.. unlike GM vehicles/etc.

oh - My e36 was my first car with cruise control, so I was unfamiliar with how other manufacturers did it.
