Me too, but since mine doesn't have it, I don't know.



As for Distronic, I think I'd agree with the salesman I spoke to: I'd wind up turning it off. It seems when you're out on the highway cruising a few hundred yards behind someone else, and that someone else slows down, Distronic will slow down as well even though it's not needed.


The salesman did his job talking you into buying a car without it. Obviously he didnít have one with it at the time. He needs to maybe learn a bit more about it. Itís fully adjustable down to 25m or yards. It will also get within a couple of yards to the car in front in slow traffic without adjusting it. In my opinion I think itís brilliant they way it works. I wouldnít want a car without it now. It will only slow down with traffic and doesnít slow down anymore than necessary.
