    For a while now, I've been meaning to post some pics of my engine bay after someone (Excursion, I think) said they'd be able to tell me if my engine is drive-by-wire. Well, I've finall got round to taking some pics. The car is a 99.5 2.8V6 30V Quattro Tiptronic, and I'd love to fit an OEM cruise control to it, hence the quesation about DBW.

    Can anyone help?

    Just look above your pedals in the footwell. Is there a cable on the accelerator pedal or is it pushing a sensor?
