Default Adaptive Cruise Assist

I would like to hear some opinions on the Audi Adaptive Cruise Assist. IMO it works well on highway but in stop and go traffic, I feel it brakes too late and makes an abrupt slow down.
Thoughts ?

You can change how aggressive this in settings. Try all the settings, but on eco mode it for sure doesn't break too late.

I tried setting the distance to the max setting, but still feel in city driving the car reacts too late (like a near sighted vision! Lol)

Manual pages 123 and 140 have so many limits, exceptions and warnings - seems safer not to use the assist and just drive attentively.

Its distance keeping didnt bother me, I thought perhaps even a bit too far in stop and go traffic. But it did tend to wander around a bit in its lane, a bit more than I thought was okay.

Agree about the wandering in the lane. Kind of like bouncing off the rails...

If you have just lane keep assist on, it will bounce. If you have adaptive cruise set with the lane keep on, then it should not bounce.

I LOVE ACC, makes it nearly impossible to rear end the car in front of you even if they do something stupid. On my 2011 A8L you can adjust following distance and also ACC braking aggression. I also have it on my 2007 A8L but it cuts off at 20 mph, no full stop mode which makes it much less useful than the later full stop version in the 2011 vehicle. Is there any possibility of upgrading the 2007 ACC into a full stop version?

Default Can 20 mph cut out ACC (2007 A8) be upgraded to full stop?

Reposting the Q with the question in the title, hoping to get a response. We have a 2007 A8L and a 2011 A8L, both with adaptive cruise control (ACC). The one in the 2007 cuts off at 20 mph, by design. The 2011 ACC can do a full stop, FAR more useful. Any possibility of making the 2007 ACC full stop?

Thanks,
Mark
