    Also while you are experimenting and checking ecu's can you also look into for details for Hill Assit mode enabling in ECU and does it reads value for longitudinal (spl) sensors.

    Sorry for the OT, but couldn't resist.

    If it is a sudden brake I agree and it is inevitable. Otherwise with CC you can control the speed and slow-down to as much as 30/40 kmph, when you see some traffic is building up. I have been using CC extensively to control speed even in city traffic, where the constant speed is around 40-45 mph (in US), US city traffic is as good as our highway traffic. With Linea's 4th or 5th gear ratio, one can easily build speed from 40-100 or 40-140 respectively. One just needs to enjoy using the CC, it help is reducing joint pains and ankle pain of the right foot. Also braking every 10-15 km is good, so that it keeps one alert as well.

    @bbllaazzee - Why don't you join us this Sunday? Did not hear from you after our initial attempt on your car.

  10. The view I posted is entirely my personal opinion from the experience I have gathered from a few highway drives(pun intended)..
    I can drive at 80kmph constantly without any fluctuations for whole day long, but other than the awesome mileage figures I get I find the journey monotonous, risky, and boooring..when you drive at constant speed for more than 2 hrs not even using the clutch and accelerator, I shudder to think what if I might doze off to sleep(which is very much a possibility)
    Opinions vary, as well as choices..it is the choices we make makes us who we are, for better or worse...
