Any word on whether it will be possible to swap out the "Enhanced ACC" modules for the "ACC with Stop Function" modules?

I also have to correct the clear coat on one quarter panel (micro marring).
Sounds cool, but way too technical for me to understand. What exactly does that mean and what is the goal of this process?

Scott was the first one to report a no, and from what I have been told from other sources it is very complex, so at this point it is EXTREMELY unlikely. I only put it that way after seeing someone was going to try and retrofit an 8.4AN into a 2012 that doesn't even have the same electrical system!

The products are for protecting/sealing the paint/clear coat so that it is easier to wash and is protected from the elements. Iron particles are etched into your clear coat from riding on the train to your dealer and will not wash off. You have to dissolve them. Other contaminants are also removed before applying the permanent crystal lacquer which basically forms a new, harder clear coat over your factory clear coat. The result is a better shine and way better protection. The C1 is harder than a clear coat for protection and the EXO repels water and dirt (it crystallizes like glass when it hardens).

Here is a very generic video...

Thanks! I'm looking at Summit stickers - the ones on dealer lots say "Adaptive Cruise Control" which I undestand means they don't have the stop feature.

However, the ones that are "In transit" don't mention ACC on the sticker at all, which is weird as it's a standard feature on the Summit

This is because it is in the base package. They would need to run a build sheet and check the option codes.... Dealer would know this.

I wouldnt get this done again really, the best method is to just wash and apply wax monthly, and you should be good.
There certainly are ones out there that don't live up to their claims. I have thousands of dollars in detailing chemicals and equipment and I have seen good and bad. This will be one of the good ones for sure. This should last 9 to 18 months depending on the amount of exposure and washings and the glass coating should last 25-45K miles depending on the same. I'll strip everything down and do it again then or try other products.

The key is to get a good bond so you have to know if you are working with polymers, silicons, lacquer etc... The bond is the most important part which means getting the contaminates out first (oils, iron etc...) and applying with the proper tools and temperature. Also allowing it to cure before a second coat (if needed) and in between products. Good products put on with the wrong technique or with contaminates will lift off early. Some people try to put on sealants when there is still a wax or polymer detailer on the surface and the sealant doesn't bond.

It worked like a charm to a complete stop and even started again if the car in front of you starts going within a second or two (otherwise it tells you to apply the brake as it turns off the ACC).

It was also smoother than our first Jeep.

This system seems very similar to what Audi and BMW are using in their vehicles. I think BMW will come to a complete stop and if the vehicle in front of you moves forward in 3 seconds it will automatically continue driving with out the driver's input. Can any one else confirm that this is actually Stop and Go and not just Stop?
