    Is it possible to add "Driver Assist"?

    I have a 2013 Platinum XTS. I really like the car overall. But the one option that I wanted but wasn't in the car is "Driver Assist" to slow the car down when the cruise control is activated and the car in front of you slows down. I have "Driver Awareness" already which is ok.

    So I was wondering if any Cadillac mechanic out there (or anyone else) knew if it could be practically added? This would only make sense our course if the car was basically "Driver Assist Ready" and you only needed to add the extra grill sensor/camera and connect it to electronics that were already there. I realize this is probably a long shot but you never know. (For the sake of this discussion, I'm not worried about violating any warranties.)

    Thanks!
    Paul

    I highly doubt it, and if it was the price would be too high. Most of this modules require a VIN to be ordered and most also are not available for purchase. I have tried stuff like this before and you will get so much resistance to it , it is not worth the effort. Plus if you were to install all of it, GM TECHLINE will NOT provide you a way to program it to your vehicle since , it was not built and optioned this way. Yes, when calling in to get an override program VCI number, they check every option you have from the vin on the vehicle you are working and if you give them the wrong one, they can tell by looking at the vehicle your connected to. Sorry to shot you down, it's just the way it is now.

    I thought the Platinum model had the Driver Assist as standard.

    From what I understand, Platinum in 2013 at least had "Driver Awareness" not "Driver Assist".

    2013 Platinum's had Driver Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control came out later than initial rollout. I waited for ACC before I ordered mine. And I should have waited a year for the twin turbo and Intellibeam, and 2015 for messaging seats, and on it goes. Lol
