  • astra vxr cruise control

    Hi, new to the site and have just baught a 59 plate vxr astra, love it to bits but could do with a bit of advice.
    i have read that cruise control can be fitted easily, yet when i spoke to my dealer he says that you can no longer do it to the later models as vauxhall have cottened on and made it harder to do. its no longer a matter of fitting the switch and running tech 2 to set it up as before, they say they have tried a few and cant. my concern is this, are they just been difficult or has anyone done this rescently or no anymore about this.
    sorry for the long thread, got carried away,
    thanks all. andy

                just got a reply from the local dealer, they say there is no gaurantee it will work but will be £110 labour + vat, they say it takes over an hour to do,, think im being done, especially since they say they arnt sure it will work and will cost me the same either way... im in the wrong job...

                      go down to your local vauxhall and go round and speak to 1 of the mechanics and see if he will do in on his lunch or if he has a tech 2 at home, i dont this at linwood vauxhall and the guy done it as a homer for me for £30 although i already had the indicator stalk off ebay that i got for £29

                        Find another dealer, just phone about most will try take you for a ride. It takes no more then 5 mins to tech 2 and no more then 5 mins fit stalk.
