    hOW DIFFICULT IS IT?

    My wife has a 2003 1.8 Elegance with the 125bhp engine, how difficult is it to swap the ECU over to my 2000 (W) 1.8 SXI (115bhp engine)?

    Probably a no go?

    The Elegance has cruise control as well...difficult to fit?

    Welcome to astrasport.

    unfortunately you can't fit CC easily to your car as it has a cable operated throttle, as opposed to your wife's which has an electronic one.

    You'd just best swap cars with her
