    Hi i was wondering if anyone knows how easy it is to fit cruise control such as AUDI A3 CRUISE CONTROL/WIPER STALKS 8L0953513J | eBay.

    In the current state the car does not have cruise control but I am guessing all the wiring would be built in just not attached the stalk?

    Any able to comment on this?

    Thanks!

    You need the wiring loom(s) as only the TDi's come with one of the ones you need IIRC... you will also need VCDS or a dealer to enable cruise control on the ECU

    Just get this kit..
    Audi TT A3 1.8T - Retrofit Cruise Control Kit | eBay

    Comes with a new stalk and the wiring looms plus instructions... got the same kit myself...

    You have to remove the airbag/steering wheel and drivers side lower dash panel... you then need to run one of the looms to the ECU and push the pre-fitted terminals into the ECU plug...

    I bought and had this kit fitted the other day when my car was serviced. Works really well.

    I did the mod on a MK4 Golf GTTDI, Real easy to follow instructions, done in 90 mins. Saves your legs and fuel!
    By the way I got a genuine retro kit from TPS (Trade Parts Specialists) for £60, dont pay over the odds on ebay.

    Hope this helps

    its alot easier on mkiv golfs because most of the loom is already in place... its about a 4 hour job on an s3 if your a cruise virgin.

    I had this done a Awesome, was something like £100 parts and labour.
    One of the better OEM mods, use it every day.

    I had mine done by Hazydayz. Took them about an hour and was about £130 from memory. A worthwhile mod especially now we have huge chunks of motorway roadworks with 50mph SPECs enforced limits.

    I also had my cruise control fitted at Awesome-Gti. £100 + vat supplied and fitted. It took them just over an hour to do. Great service and little demo on completion. Highly recommended.

    Was yours easy to do <tuffty/>? I've got an APY S3, do I need extra looms and Vag-Com too?

    Hi guys,

    Ive got an Audi a3 8l 1.9TDI.

    Am i correct in thinking that as its a TDI i only need the stalk and all wiring for crusie control will already be present?

    Thanks
