    I had mine done by VWCruise, didn't seem that difficult while I watched them, vag.com and a new stalk + cowling was about it tbh.

    you will need to know what module you have to see if its compatible with cruise.
    vagcom will tell you this.
    if you have the correct one then as niknak says, cruise stalk, no need for new cowl, your cowl can easily me trimmed to suit. and code the car to tell it it has cruise.

    i wouldnt !!!! recommend vwcruise, way way to greedy.
    have a go yourself , if not get some off here to do it for you , will work out alot cheaper
    LOTS DONE, LOTS SPENT !!!!

    Before you plan which Sunday afternoon you'll do all this on, check the 2 things that tripped me up - the torx driver to remove the bottom cowling needs to be LONG!! I had to trim the plastic off the handle of the halfrauds one I bought. Also, on your dummy run to test your torx driver, check the marking for where you need to cut the plastic on the inside of the cowl to allow the stalk to protrude, this wasn't there on mine, had to buy new pre-cut cowl from the stealer.
