Cruise control - retrofit...

Postby Knobby » Sun Dec 02, 2012 10:44 pm

After doing 250 miles down to Cornwall this weekend the only think I missed was cruise control. Found myself creeping up to speeds I didn't want to be at.

So anyone done it?

I know on previous cars its about £150 ish..

I was looking at this too. Dealer quoted me £400.

CC is also great for roads with SPECS cameras (motorway roadworks) or lots of Gatso'e etc.

I think it's quite expensive with the latest cars as they need a control module too (but I stand to be corrected on this).

These guys are local to me :-

Maybe a group buy opportunity ? :D

I'll speak to the dealers, see what they say. Need to get some warranty work done anyway.

Jonny, I'm way down South so I think Bradford is a no no for me.

Totally agree on your comments about CC through and one of the main reasons why I want to get it done.
