  • cruise control

    I didnt bother with cruise control when I bought my VXR becasue I only do a couple of thousand motorway miles a year so didnt think I need it. But becasue of the fluctuating fuel economy of the VXR I think it would probably pay for itself over the 3 years I plan to have the car.
    It is possilbe to have this added now and does anyone know the cost?
    Thanks

    Yes cruise control can be added, if you do a search here, astra-sri.co.uk and astra-sport.co.uk theres plenty of info on what you need to do to have it fitted.

      Ben - before you invest (its a nice mod anyway) be aware that a couple of us have discovered you actually return a poorer mpg when using the Cruise Control than you do 'manual'.

        Its interesting as I actually get better mpg maually than on cruise as well, mainly becuase the car is designed on keeping the speed and not the throttle position. Can't have it all ways I suppose.

          i have found the same on my last 3 cars.
          BUT what i have found is that i use it all the time when driving any distance, ALSO when in toen where there is loads of SPEED camera's it helps you to avoid a ticket.

            Hi found useing cruise improves mpg
            fitted cruise to my vectra b 2.2 petrol and also to my sport hatch 1.9cdti
            the parts needed are
            indictor stalk for the controls
            most petrol models will need a clutch switch
            then a friendly techie at your local dealer to activate it.
            looking at £45-50 for the parts
            simple

              All manual cars will need the clutch switch unless it's already fitted, the brake switch may be different i'm not sure.
              the loom should be in the car then its as trip on a TECH2 to set it up.
