Cruise retrofitted!

Post by Grello » Thu 06 Apr, 2017 17:18

Just finished the cruise control retrofit. About an hour for me too and works a treat straight "out of the box". A fantastic and straightforward add-on which will take some of the strain away on our upcoming trip to Bavaria.

If I can do it, so can anyone with a little bit of DIY.

Strut brace has arrived today, too. Much excitement!

Yes, it's easy of the fly-by-wire models. The hardest part is finding the hidden connector taped to the loom. Mine, also on a 2.2i, occasionally doesn't respond to a command, but after a stop and start it usually does.

yes mine does that on occasion... works fine for 99% then an odd occasion it wont activate. I have to switch off and back on again...

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

Fitting cruise control is easy on the later Z3 with electronic throttle. It took me less than an hour to do mine and as above it worked perfectly.
