Mein Auto: Mercedes E550 4matic
I've ordered the adaptive cruise control in my 650ix Grand Coupe hoping that this system will give a loud warning when your accelerarion rate indicates an impending collision with the car in front of you. That's the way the Mercedes system works when you don't have the adaptive cruise engaged; it really is a helpful alarm, especially when you are looking somewhere else. The only time the brake engages in the Mercedes,I believe ,is when the cruise control is active; but I've never tested this.
