Hello Don
Thank you for reply.
Is it necessary to buy code from Audi (they sell only CODE+SWITCH) or is it possible to activate only on Gateway via ODIS?
Or you have any process how to do it ? Not sure if in Audi know how :-)
Thank you

A few years back I retro fitted cruise control to a 2009 VW CC. In that instance as per instructions, I had to fit a single service wire into the main plug that goes into the bottom plug of the new stalk assembly to one of the two plugs that go into the ECU before I could get it to work.
Did you car require this wire to be fitted?

I have no answer from Don over months. Not good solution :-( Hope someone else can find the way to activate only ACC without sellings other hardware or modified firmware for hacked radars ... I ordered for this project SWAP codes for activating Cruise control. I will se if it works

You could try to contact AIDU auto golfi_vend mentioned in his posting. Ask if they have a gateway with ACC FeC's enabled availabe. If they have CCS and driving mode program, ACC shouldn't be any different.

And what comes to the ACC hacked radar, it actually might be possible without any hacks. The round faced radars are older generation which did not have SWaP yet. They only have component protection. So install one of those and get CP removed by authorized service and you should be good to go. The ACC has both follow-to-stop and stop-n-go possible.

The radar I have should be fine :

Code:
Address 13: Auto Dist. Reg (J428)       Labels:| 5Q0-907-567.clb
   Part No SW: 5Q0 907 567 L    HW: 5Q0 907 567 L
   Component: ACC3          H10 0098
And this should work as well :
Code:
Adresse 13: Distanzregelung (J428) Labeldatei:| 5Q0-907-567.clb
Teilenummer SW: 5Q0 907 567 G HW: 5Q0 907 567 G
Bauteil: ACC3 H07 0386
Only problem is that these radars are REALLY difficult to find nowadays as everyone wants one for retrofit :) And if you do find one, they are usually e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e.

Here's one in Poland :
https://bt-cars.pl/pozostale/7188-v...7541j-5q0907567g-distronic-5q0-907-541-j.html

Price is 949 Polish zloty which is roughly around 250 euros.

Edit :

And here's same radar what I have for half the price compared to the G radar, this is about 130 € :
