Retrofitting Adaptive Cruise Control

Hi All,

I was wondering if someone already has retrofitted ACC (5DF / S5DFA)?
And is retrofitting ACC so easy as it seems? Mounting the radar and steer buttons and VO code the option?

Thanks for the response and help!

Tom

Have you checked your car on a Vin decoder? If your car came with either of the Parking Assistant packages (5DM or 5DN), you would not need to replace the DSC. If not, you would need to replace, and your car will also need the SAS module, among other things. I would check first before buying the parts.

Thanks for the advise and info Roxxor!
My car is equipped with S5DM (Parking Assistance System), so that means I don't need to replace my DSC!

My new shopping list:
- acc sensor and mounting bracket
- bumper grille
- steer buttons


Are there any other things I missed? Or has somebody retrofitted ACC already?

Just looking at the parts list for option 5DF on Bimmercat, that should be all you need, other than running the wiring of course.

Good luck!

Sorry to say; after I called the dealer for pricing information and i found out that I needed 2500 euro for parts, I quitted the retrofitting. The ACC Sensor alone was 2200 euro!

You can find used parts online much cheaper than that in good working condition. On eBay, the FRR (radar) can be had used for around $650-$750 USD.

Very rarely do I buy the major parts new for my retrofits. The actual modules and such I will find used, and then whatever I canít find used or things like wiring, etc, I will order from a supplier.

What type of retrofits have you done if you don't mind me asking? Thank you.

On my G30 so far only the Ambient Air/Ionizer. On my G01 X3 I did the 6WB Digital Cluster and the Gesture Control, and on my F30, pretty much everything lol. I did Front and Rear PDC, Parking Assistant, Backup Camera, Surround View Camera, Lane Change Warning, Lane Departure Warning, you name it.

Do you already have blind spot on your g30? Was going to ask help with that if you plan to do a retrofit on that as well. Thank you.

Yeah, I ordered mine with pretty much everything from the factory as I didnít want to have to do all those retrofits on my G30. Whenever you get ready to do it though let me know and Iíll see what I can find as far as parts and stuff you would need.
