    Hmmm, I bought a base spec 220CE on purpose. I want to keep it a long time, and I dont want to get ****d off with broken air con, too much electrics etc etc.

    BUT I wouldnt mind cruise control.
    Anyone got any idea if this would be at all possible to retro fit by using bits from a breakers yard?
    I dont know if some of the wiring may already be there, ie just connect up the new components?

    there are aftermarket kits available - a MB OEM solution would be too expensive.


    I was looking at a solution for my car a year ago, i'll dig up my notes.

    It would be clever to install this with a factory MB control stalk/lever for the oem look... hopefully the push/pull etc is the same as labelled <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'></td></tr></table><span id='postcolor'>
    Steve installed it with a factory control!!!!

    Cheers

    Ooops, sorry Koolvin, I didnt mean to confuse - I meant Geoffs.

    Yours were a little over my budget and besides you've sold them now anyway haven't you?
