    Hi, anyone retro fitted cruise control, I assume its not too bad, plus then having it coded. My car is a 2010 2.0 tdi quattro.
    Thanks Alex

    Ash187 or NHN can do it for you. Shouldn't cost any more than about £150 including coding install and parts.

    Thanks again for the quick response, I will have a look, I did find something on ebay that had a good instruction guide, its just the coding that I would need to get done.

    Coding literally takes 5 mins if that. If you decide to fit it yourself but don't have VCDS, stick a thread up on here, I'm sure someone will code it for you.

    Once again thanks for the input, I will probably do as you suggest, I want to get the alarm beep switched on as well anyway.

    Please dont advise on cost for jobs done by retrofit installers. As prices may differ from each individual. These matters should be discussed through pm by the installer and the op. Thank you.

    Sandra,

    Apologies, I thought I was only giving a guide price, not actually discussing fixed prices that the guys on here charge.

    Anyway, I won't do so again :)
