Does anybody know how easy it is to install cruise control and can it be fitted without going through the dealers.

I would think it would be impossible to add Cruise Control after the car is built.

A friend has bought a Vauxhall Antarra without cruise control but found out that most cars now have it pre installed but just needs to be connected. He purchased a new indicator stalk with cruise control switch fitted and installed it himself thus enabling cruise control.

I had not thought of that Northy, if that is the case go ahead and make further inquiries.

Hi Northy. I too had a friend who retrospectively fitted cruise to his VW Passat without going through a dealer, just an indicator stalk and a bit of wire. Slightly more tricky than that but you know what i mean. Although the Bmax has the cruise within the steering wheel, I figure if it can be done it will be more tricky than doing the indicator stalk. The Air bag and stereo controls all runthrough the squib behind the steering wheel. Unless you can find someone who knows for sure this can or can't be done, I would look behind the wheel first to see if the wires are actually in place before proceding any further.

During my negotiation with the dealer, he offered one car without cruise control (at a discount price), so I asked about the posibility of later instalation. It turns out to be possible, but new steering wheel must be ordered, dont remember exact price, but it was a lot of .
When I mentioned that it was a show-stopper for me, he digged deeper into inventory, and voila - B-Max with cruise control available in stock [img]smileys/smiley32.gif[/img]
It was a bit more expensive, but only about 100

Hi, I had a Kia Sedona that did not have cruise. There are firms who retro fit them to any car. Cost about 350 for the Sedona. It looked like it was original to the car.

Should't be a showstopper in the UK as the traffic is to heavy to use it most of the tine unless you like driving on motorways at 2 oclock in the morning.

Fo me it has some uses as i can pull intoo the nearside lane and switch to 50 or 60 when my right leg cramps.
