    Mike, no not all Audi A4's come with Cruise Control, but it can be retro fitted afterwards.

    Gareth comes to you, and should be done in an hour or so. OK, so it's double the cost of the parts alone, but hey...

    Yep - as people say, it's a retro fit item if needed. Got mine done at Main Dealers before I knew about this site - cost me 225.....

    Thats why we call them the Stealers

    But look around on the forums as some would have detailed the process of retrofit yourself, if you follow step by step you shouldnt have problem, not only save you money but also good learning curve for other retro's, plus plenty of techie guys on forums to ask for help.

    I bought our A4 used from a dealer and I negotiated the addition of cruise control as part of the deal amongst other small details such as price, as I knew it's a doddle to do. So that's always an option open to you.

    @ andyccr -- 225 fitted, plus warranty - yep. But I did buy the car from the dealers at the same time, so they were already getting 18K of my hard earned cash!!!!!
