    Talking First mod of the year complete

    The derv now has cruise control!

    I'm very pleased, it was a bit of a chore getting all the trim back in place in the end but well worth it.

    Cruise control is very useful.

    If anybody wants any help, let me know.

    It was a fiddly job, a few gotchas which I can outline if anybody wants to know how to do it.

    I needed a new steering module which was £106, the switch itself £24 and a new lower trim £23.

    These from vagparts, expect to pay probably another £50 at a dealer.

    Sometimes but not always! My cruise switch and lower column trim were the same price from my local dealer.

    Thats not bad then, the steering control module was broadly 106 + VAT when I phoned them just before Christmas, just assumed the other bits would be slightly more.

    Good work Neil, I've wanted to fit cruise for a while now. It's so cheap seems rude not to!

    It was a 400 factory option 3 years ago!!!


    I've got to say I've never found Vag Parts to be much, if any cheaper than my dealer. Ask for a bit of discount at your dealer they can only say no or how's 10%?

    Exactly what I did! Also reminded them I had bought 2 new cars from them in the last 12 months, he asked his supervisor and instantly knocked off 10%, Happy days

    Cruise is good though isnt it? Cheaper than a tank of Diesel!

    Thanks chaps, will think more about the dealer now I think!

    Cruise is extremely useful and i've only had it five minutes, got a 230 mile drive tomorrow so will be putting it through it's paces straight away.

    How did you code it Neil?

    I coded it by following the instructions here...

    http://www.tyresmoke.net/ubbthreads/...0/fpart/2/vc/1

    See the fifth post down by Shark_90

    The top section tells you about "logging in", you will need to go to controller 03, the ABS and Brake controller and login with a code for your car, which you can work out from the link in the post, you will then need to recode the new module (assuming you put in a new module), also referring to that link.

    Then follow the calibration instructions in the post and the rest of it.

    I didn't need to follow the instructions for module 17 as this was instruction for enabling DIS which I already have.

    If you don't put in a new steering control module, you can skip coding the module, just login and go straight to the calibration.
