Audi S3 2008 Built (8P). Retrofitted Cruise Control. NEW ECU or no ECU?
First time owner of a 2nd hand Audi S3 (8P). Please excuse my newbie ways.
I have just bought an Audi S3 built in April 2008 and I want to stick cruise control on it. I got a price for fitting Cruise Control for £237 fitted including VAT. This is from Hadwins Audi in the Lake District. This includes a new 2 stalk arm and some plastic trim to replace the single stalk plastic cover...............but the engineer said that I might need an new ECU that costs £167. He said that there was no way of telling if I needed the new ECU until it was programmed. If it wont program then I would need to buy the ECU. And that would be after fitting the cruise control so I'd be locked in to buying the new ECU.
I have noticed 3rd party cruise control fitters (using Audi OEM parts) seem to suggest that if I have the Multifunction display that an new ECU wouldn't be needed.
I dont want to fit Cruise control for £237 and then find out its costing me over £400.
So can anyone help me out and tell me if I need a new ECU.
Has anyone had Cruise Control retrofitted to an Audi S3 (8P)?
Thanks for your help
