Wow, this is amazing to see! I spent a long time looking for my 7 with ACC. How hard was the retrofit? Cost?

+100. Please could you explain the wiring. Been mulling over doing this retrofit, but there is very little info available.

I just follow instruction for this retrofit. Wiring-2 wires to CAN bus-connector in FR Wheel arch, 1 wire to the Fuse box in glove compartment, 1 wire to CAS and ground
Take me about 4.5 hour and cost me $250, because i get ACC for free

Question, did you car have a open grey black connector on the left (from the front), behind the bumper and below the lights? It is the one in the green block on the photo. I think my car is pre-wired for ACC.

inspi, i am planning for a retrofit of ACC at the same time, what a coincidence i am after ACC 1 tough. Because ACC2 is more complicated with brake sensors and other stuff. Your is ACC1 right? without brake version

You need SRRs and a dsc unit with acc , lots of wiring, maybe front bumper support for SRRs, too many things to list, possible but not worth i think. I will stick to original and retrofit ACC1 for my car

Inspi, just to clarify a few points, i see that you didnt change your DSC unit, so your car is braking when the distance gets closer?? I know that DSC unit should be changed and brake sensors should be added to the axles for braking functions. I am searching for parts for retrofit, and if so i may consider adding ACC2 as you do. Thanks in advance

My car is pre-wired. All i need is the front end wiring, sensor and stalk. The wiring that goes into the car is already in place.
