Your absolutely right. Why didn't I understand that...

Im looking to retrofit ACC (Active Cruise Control), but I am not sure if it's possible on the F20. I see you can order it on the LCI, but was it available pre LCI?

I see the have a KaFAS kamera for the F20, for lane departure warning etc. But I am not sure that is the same sensor used for ACC.

I think the sensor is a radar in the front of the car, not a camera. I think it wasn't available before the facelift.

I talked to my retrofit guy, and he said there are several parts you need to change. Parts that already comes with car, but carry a different part number if you order the car with ACC.

He mentioned: DSC and ICM, windscreen KAFS camera and module, FRR. That is going to cost several thousand dollars...

Thinking of installing the CC, but already have the limiter which works well too. Only advantage I can see is being able to remove your foot from the accelerator...

Actually, when using your limiter if you are going downhill the car may and will pass the limited speed.

For the CC, the car will break. It is great comfort for me when going downhill and speed limit zones.
