    Possible to retrofit cruise?

    Just bought a stock car, since it had 99% of the options I wanted and was exact colours.

    Would love cruise though!

    Re: Possible to retrofit cruise?

    986 or 987 ??

    986 is definitely possible, a few guys in the UK have done this - you need a new column stalk module, one with all the levers, rather than your current 2 (or 3 if you have obc) unit, and then it to be turned on by the OPC in the configuration options within the diagnostics.


    For 987 ? - i'd be interested myself - the parts diagrams for the steering column show the cruise lever as a separate column stalk, so easily bolted in, and a single cable to the wiper stalk above. You will also need a replacment lower casing for the steering column, to accept the extra column stalk. I guess it will need configuring again at the dealer.

    A nice Cobalt 987

    Dealer says no, but that means no offical kit, rather than not possible.

    Have to wait a week for it to cross the channel

    Colour wise its Cobalt, Metropole, Stone Grey, with painted rear console and rollover hoops.

    More intersting than my last two black 986's!

    Interesting combination alongside my own cobalt 987 - metropole top, ocean blue, with aluminium effect centre console and roll bars. Your choice sounds superb, very nearly chose that scheme myself.

    Re: Possible to retrofit cruise?

    Cobalt with black or grey is quite similar. IMO a better contrast with grey, rather than black, specially roof down.

    Black on a 997 with a sunroof, fairly sunny:



    Stone on a Cayman (not so sunny):

    Re: Possible to retrofit cruise?

    I'll ask the dealer to have a go this week.

    - Get a stalk orderd and then enable Cruise in the DME/Cluster.

    Fingers crossed.

    its worth a try - i do wonder whether you also need extra switches under the brake and clutch pedals, to deactivate cruise if you brake or depress the clutch ??

    be interested to hear how you get on
