    Howdo!

    Just got myself a 170 S-Line (DSG) and already feel the need to mod it! Car is fairly basic, however does have blue-tooth fitted but no MFSW which is a pain whilst driving. I've got a MFSW but need someone with the skills to fit and also cruise control whist the wheel is off, anyone got any recommendations???
    I believe I need to check slipring & ECU compatibility? How can I do this? Any advice/info most welcome.

    Cheers Pablo

    What part of the country you in mate? If prepared to travel a bit, I could do this for, send me a PM if interested.

    Being you have the DSG, so presuming you have the flappy paddles, then you already have the highline module "F" which will take the MFSW no problem. Straight swap with a bit of VCDS coding. Your cruise control is not a problem to fit.

    I have a Cruise kit (both the stalk and lower cowling) for a 2011 Model year A3. I fitted it and subsequently removed it from my A3 BE when I sold it on. i live near Yeovil, but don't get home that often now, or i would assist.

    pm if interested in the kit?

    No good for his car mate, he will need the pre June 2009 stalk as the high beam mechanism works differently.

    PM a price posted to London mate, as I have a potential buyer who wants cruise but wants to save on the costing including fitting. I like to always use brand new parts, but he is not bothered that the part will be secondhand, if it means saving an extra few quid. :)

    Yes mate, it will be suitable 8P0 953 513 B. that is the part number of the stalk.
    The part number I gave you is for the kit which contains the stalk, basically you get a control wire which you don't need, a few cable ties and the stalk.
    If ordering from the dealer, they only sell the kit and not the stalk alone.

    There is a guy called Robert on eBay, he is selling a stalk for £20 inc postage, but it does have a few scratches on it, but if that does not bother you, then you got yourself a bit if a saving there mate.

    But you still have the matter of sourcing the lower cowling.
