In my case distronics works fine for maybe a hour or so for then suddely stop working. And it will not work again before I stop the car and start it again. Annoing really, but then again, I like the look of it I have put matte black vinyl over the chrome.

RE: Grill and Distronic

+1. Has anyone installed these with "distronic" cruise control and kept 100% distronic function?

I inquired about several updated grilles on Ebay last Winter, and none were guaranteed to be distronic compatible by the sellers, so I left well enough alone.

I'd do a grill upgrade tomorrow if it were distronic compatible.

Too bad they dont fit on the 2 door coupe. I like the all black single fin look.
