    As Uwe has said the system is integrated into the car's throttle and brakes. This is why you won't find 3rd party aftermarket ACC or similar ADAS products and I don't think you ever will.
    I don't think any 3rd party company could take the risk of a software error and manslaughter charges. Some things you can't avoid paying through the nose!
    Your response is unhelpful. I've never stated I want to change the alignment parameters of the ACC system. I want to align the radar unit to the parameters of the ACC system. That has nothing to do with car throttle or brakes - that is embedded in the system parameters. If it works it works. If the radar is out of alignment it stops working. ...like mine. I want to find what the alignment spec is, what my out-of-alignment is, and then turn the tip/tilt screws on the radar unit to get it working again.

    For example, if I can determine which measured value is telling me how far out the horizontal angle is I can easily find how many degrees of screw turn gives so many degrees of angle change. Same with vertical.
