    Is it possible to retrofit cruise control to a 2001 Mercedes A Class 190? If it is, how can we get the parts and undertake the fitting?

    My partner has injured her knee and needs a cruise control and we don't really want to change the car.

    Thanks for your help

    I have very recently retro-fitted cruise control to my 2000 A160.

    If your car is an auto then there is a chance that the wiring may already be in place (it was on mine).

    You will obviously need the stalk (ebay?), also a new steering column cover (about £15 new from MB).

    Most probably the ECU variant coding will have to be changed, your friendly local indy should be able to do this using Star.

    This will explain things a bit more...http://www.mbclub.co.uk/forums/electronics/68211-retrofitting-cruise-control.html

    Hope this helps
