Does anyone know if replacing the windshield requires a recalibration of the collision/adaptive cruise control? I would assume it does not since the windshield doesn't actually attach to it. Likewise I would assume that a lift or larger tires would require some sort of calibration! Has anyone had any issues or experience with this?

We picked up a rock chip the first day we had our 392. Our dealership was in the process of sealing it when they worsened it and caused the need for a replacement windshield. Cost them $1000 . Yes they had to recalibrate the adaptive cruise control system.
 
3.5" Metalcloak Lift and 37 inch tires and no calibration required. Only if you put a new windshield in.
 
I replaced my windshield at 4k miles, the glass shop told me they could do the recalibration. After they replaced the glass, they told me I had to take it to the dealer to recalibrate things. They weren't sure exactly what things had to be recalibrated though. So I just drive it, basically no difference in the adaptive cruise control or vehicle sensing. Your mileage may vary!

I've had my glass replaced already, there's no recalibration required because it's a frame mounted unit instead of a windshield mounted unit like most vehicles. Frame mounted isn't too common so that helps the misinformation.

I mean if you just think about the windshield techs who say it needs a recal after windshield replacement, that would be like saying every time you folded down your windshield (which the vehicle is designed to do) you would need to recal when you put it back up.

Good information to know.
