Re: Retro fit cruise control to //M?

Seriously, shouldn't be too difficult to do though and you could probably pick up the bits from a breakers out of an old E36 M3.

You'll need the steering column stork and actuator for certain but not sure on the the wiring, there's probably a box under the dash as well.

Great looks, good emmissions, very quick and a choice of trim spec which you should be able to tailor to your budget quite easily.

If the XF isn't quite big enough then the XJ is a good size and you should be able to pick a sub 10k ex demo for around £40k I would think.
