    Active Brake Assist Limited Functions

    I’ve just bought a write off A-Class A160 AMG Line and it only has fairly light damage, however, the emergency braking radar looks knackered. Does anyone have any idea if I can just buy a new/second hand one and just plug it in and it’d work, or would it have to be programmed to the car. Cheers.

    Does anyone know exactly what A models 2008-2012 had Parktronic available as an option? I think only certain versions did - I'd particularly like to find an 'Elegance' but trade adverts rarely go this far. Wish they would. Thanks.
