    Hi all,

    new to this car, have a few questions that i need answering so wil ltry to get them all in the correct places.

    im looking to retrofit the cruise control onto an 2015 (65) A180d, can someone provide me a list of parts that are required, in particular Mercedes part numbers, so i can order them.

    I have access to a star machine so i should be able to code, just need the parts and a fitting guide

    once fitted would this give me basic cruise control, speedtronic, distronic, distronic plus? (all seem a bit similar) car has 258 COLLIS.WARN. SYS. W/ ACTIVE BRAKE INTERV. FCW STOP

    You have to replace the whole steering column switch pack and cowl (its all once part), and there's *loads* depending on model year, options fitted etc. You also need a safety lock for one of the connectors too.

    You will not be able to program it with a clone Star. You need Xentry, and online SCN coding, and the ability to update VeDOK - there is a load of stuff to code.

    It will give you standard cruise control with the limiter.

    many thanks

    ive got access to a full star so that shouldnt be a problem.

    i guess i will need to have a chat with someone that might actually know what parts i need if the variations are too many.
