Hi guys, newbie here so be easy, Im looking for someone in the Yorkshire area that could retrofit cruise control into my car. Its a 2008 so doesn't need the wire running from the ecu. Any local members know of anyone in the Leeds area? Thank you.

I done my own - it's not that hard. You will need the stalk, mid/highline module and coding.  :happy2:

Hello

I’ve been looking to do this to my 08 GTI with DSG box, is it really that simple as I have found somewhere who does it for £150 all in and supplying the stalk as well.

Is it just a case of fitting the stalk and a recode.

I’m in Epsom does anyone near able to do stuff like that. 👍👍

I found it was a lot easier than all the videos and guides online make it look.
Like most things, it looks and sounds more difficult until you come to do it.

I’m sure you’ve probably already seen the vids etc... but this one is pretty much bang on from what I remember:


You just need to make sure you got the right module and slip ring or something. But chances are you probably have. So just need to buy the stalk.  The part number for stalk that I brought.. 1k0953513G

Can pick them up genuine second hand off eBay for 20-30 quid (paid £20 for mine and it’s mint)

I’m guessing you’re referring to awesome offering the service of supplying and fitting for £150 as I looked into that too, but when the time come I spend £20 and got a mate to VCDS it (I didn’t own vcds at the time) but literally is so easy. As 2006 up have the wire we’re lucky otherwise it’d be a lot harder!

Once fitted, the stalk will still indicate too so once you’ve fitted it, you can drive the car about until you find someone with vcds to plug in and code it. I would offer to help but I’m a bit away from Epsom (Aylesbury).

Just research as much as you can, take your time and give it a crack!

I found the volkswizard guide on YouTube the best one.

Easy Saturday morning job. Retro fitted cruise to my mk4 and mk5 Ed30 in sunny Tadvegas, coded it in and away you go.
