If it does set off the radar detector is it only when your using active cruise control? Or all the time like the Mercedes. Any help would be appreciated
If I recall correctly the MB's have a safety system that constantly monitors using the radar even when the cruise control is not in use. Something like adaptive braking that uses it. The 7 shouldn't have this problem. Kind of seems like MB wasn't really thinking of those with radar detectors (although there aren't a whole lot of us).
