Hello,
Last week I passed by my local dealer here in Dubai (UAE) to check if he receives any SC specs. which will be sold as a gulf specs. I was quit happy till he told me that no rear diff lock & adaptive cruise control are available, Can any one tell from the specs below what is the "rear E-diff. and active rear locking differential. I hope that it is what I'm looking for

ACC works by using a radar box on the front of the car, you can see it in gallery pics on the Supercharger models, its in the 'mouth' of the front bumper on the right side.

Basically it throws a beam in front of the car and detects when another car is in your track and can also determine the speed of the car in front. It then applies your brakes to slow you down so that you stay a set distance from it, which you set via the buttons on the steering wheel.

Although it's a good toy I have found it to be irritating at times as it picks up vehicles not in your lane but to the left of the car, such as Artic' lorries going MUCH slower, the car then JAMS on the brakes for 'no reason'. I wish there was the opportunity to switch off the ACC and just have normal cruise. I think you are not missing much. 2013MY L405 RR VSE

I think in some regions/countries, generating the radar signal is illegal. So, that's why it may not be offered. It may need to be "approved" first.

I am pretty sure I was able to put my car in normal cruise control before, are you sure there is no way of doing it RRUK?

so there is no off/on switch to use it as normal cruise control?
by the way what is the max speed limit that cruise control could be seted
in my wife Lexus RX u can set it even to 180 km/h i know that's is crazy speed but it works, in my previous Grand Cherokee the limit was 140km/h
maybe much safe but borring Wink

Guys I want you to be sure is 180 km/hr or less..it's important to me
sample: just speed up and set your cruise at your high speed for just say 2 min Laughing I will not pay your radars bill

All Adaptive Cruise Control implementations I've seen are limited to 180 km/h -- so I expect LR vehicles to be the same. For non-ACC vehicles, I have no idea if it's limited. I haven't tested it. Cool
