    Hi all, has anyone with on 07 plate retrofitted the cruise control,was going to order the parts today but Audi say i might need to change the Ecu!! Surely a car of this age has the ability to add cruise without a new ecu?? So if anyone has done this was it just swap the stalk and vcds it?

    I'm sure that since you have a FBMFSW your steering ECU will be ok. Audi were proably playing safe (or hoping to fleese you LOL)

    Wes ive got both parts need to fit cruise in the shed, I just need to check with IGGU as he may want them, if not there yours. I fitted ut to mine with no issues. As nigel said what version is your steering wheel ECU. Do you have MFSW?

    MFSW is not the kicker on an 8P. Cruise/trip computer go hand in hand, so if you have a trip computer (which you do, as it's an S3) then you're fine to just replace the stalk and cowling.

    I wish Audi would learn some of the simplest things about their cars instead of trying to scare people off retrofits.
