i can't get over how simple it was, makes me wonder why it wasn't standard in the first place as everything was in place - bit a con having it as optional extra in the first place and i bet it don't cost seventy quid!!!

Really hand on the motorway and through road works, or them nasty SPECS cameras!
One thing that really annoys when using cruise control is when them average speed cameras are in operation during motorway roadworks. Now it says limit 40 MPH so i set my cruise to 40MPH which all is fine untill the ******* car in front drops to 35mph for the camera :mad: i cant change lane because the other cars are reacting to the same problem in their lane.... so their getting annoyed because they can`t get into my lane. Why cany people just do what it says, 30,40,50,60,70 instead of 25,35,45,55,65 when it comes to speed cameras :mad:
