    Cruise, should it be there?

    Hi guys,

    I posted a query a little while back about fitting cruise in a 1.8 Astra Convertible company car that i'm getting - the car's not brand new.

    The car is a Linea Rossa 03 1.8 Convertible.

    The workshop have sent me pictures of the interior and exterior, and from what i can tell (I could be wrong) the indicator stalk seems to be the same one found in cars fitted with Cruise Control - there seems to be two buttons on the end of the stalk.

    So is it possible the car already has Cruise? How can this be as it's not listed as an option on my Car Reallocation form - this is an internal form that normally lists all the extras ordered with the car when it was new for tax purposes.

    It has a Wind Breaker and some removable pads listed and that's it!

    I'm totally confused, but not complaining

    Is it possible Vauxhall just gave it away on certain models? Anyway's car is coming in the next few days so i'll find out for sure.

    yes mate it's the same stalk looks fatter than a normal stalk and two buttons right at the tip of the stalk, i'm 99% certain now actually as i've looked at pics in the guide and in the dealer brochure... hope it does as it's the one thing i really need!

    Ffoeg,

    Fantastic!

    Thanks mate. Wow i'm surprised - so i can also expect the trip computer..

    Hmm apart from the electric seats it's almost as well equipped as my SAAB Aero Conv - and that was a good Ł12k more when new!

    Nay probs mate - The linea rossa was IMO probably the most complete Mk4 ever produced, and bloody rare too, so you'll have all the toys.

    Post some picces for us all to drool over when you pick it up (like yo need to be told that )

    hehe yeah no probs mate. I have some pics already that the workshop took for me but it needs a wash so i'll wait till i have her, put the grille and new bulbs in and then snap away.. I was a bit nervous about getting a red car especially with such a bright interior but it's kinda growing on me now... Spent all weekend in the SAAB with the hood down coz i'm so sad about giving it up... Oh well at least the money i'll be saving will go towards the wife's Masters degree..

    Can you tell me how i post pics, it's been ages since i last did it?

    Well she finally arrived at the workshop this morning, but as it was a bit dirty they've sent it off to be valeted..

    My Power Blue bulbs arrived in the post today so i dropped them off at the workshop for them to fit and check the aim.

    I'll get it Thurs hopefully as i need to remove my CK7W Nokia kit from my SAAB.

    Can anyone tell me where the interface loom is on the Astras? Is it behind the glovebox? I've already ordered the Autoleads loom and relay.

    Just waiting for the grille to arrive - also found an I badge with a red dot on the i on ebay...

    Roll on Thurs!
