sorry it seems it's now available on manuals


Cruise control has been available on manual cars for years? I remember the father having a 1992 Maxima that had it and was manual too.

We're talking about adaptive cruise control whereby the car automatically slows if the car in front slows and increases speed up to the desired speed if the car in front does so, it will also come to a complete stop if the car in front does
I don't know how this operates in a manual but seemingly it now can
old cruise control disengaged once you had to brake in order to slow down for the car ahead


I think my 161 superB has that, well it has something thats hits the breaks if i forget to.

I think that called "adaptive hitting the car in front braking"

i only realised recently that if I hold down the open door button on the remote all the windows open, similarly if I hold the close doors button down it closes all the windows ..surprisingly handy actually ...... works on the open/close window buttons on the drivers door too, (opens /closes all the windows at once) very useful for bad odours

Amazing how many folk don't know that. Most German cars - not Mercs, I think - have done it for years. Your last Superb certainly did.

Take an hour out someday El Tonio (whilst sitting in the cab) and have a breeze through the owners manual,
you would be amazed at what you might find out !

I'm getting to liking the Auto light system where it Dips the lights fer you.
