    Just had a price from Cardiff Audi to retrofit cruise control to the old girl.

    Now there was a time when VW, Audi etc were doing this for £150 - £200.

    Here's the email I got


    Haven spoken to the parts department they have given me a price of £560.16 that is all inclusive of labour parts and VAT. We would need to see the vehicle first to order the specific parts to your vehicle. If you would like this to be carried out please let me know when would be convenient.

    That's daylight robbery! Jonny on here would fit cruise control to four cars for that sort of money, including all the parts needed. Unreal. :(

    Like Paullie said I can fit Cruise for £149 and still make a little profit, its beyond me that Audi think its appropiate to charge so much.

    Rhyso you could pay for Jonny to drive down, stay in a 5 star hotel and fit the following morning for the price theyve quoted!!!!

    Jonny did mine top job and used it everyday since!!!

    I was just about to blindly post that I would fit it for you, but decided to look at your location first. I think it would cost whichever one of us travelled, the same amount in fuel as what Audi have quoted you for the job. It would be cheaper to post your car to me :)

    Probably based more on the fact that they don't have a clue what they are doing rather than ripping you off.
