    If you check the howto: http://www.ffoeg.com/AS/howto/cruise.pdf you'll see instructions on how to check if all the necessary parts are there before you start

    Yes, just a matter of fitting the control stalk and getting it activated via Tech2

    Prepare to be bent over and nailed up the arse if you want vauxhall to do it, it will cost you mucho dinero!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    Along with that make sure there is the switch on the Clutch pedal. 99% of VXR's like Coo's and mine are prepped for it, yours may not be. Its an additional part if needed. I have the numbers here ....

    Stalk 13129642
    Switch 55701395

    Will be afew quid from your local dealers. Tech2 wise, usually 30mins of labour cost so another £30-40

    Rubbish, i am doing mine tomorrow. I'll even do a how to guide if you want. If you are not far from Southampton then i could fit it on a Sat morning if you wanted then go to regals for the Tech2
