Long time serial Vauxhall owner
4 x mk2 cavaliers including a CalibrE
Wife haď a Mk3 cavalier for 13 years.
3 x mk3 Astra (wrote them all off)
1 x mk4 Astra 1.6 16v sport (sold to buy the omega)
Current daily 3.2 MV6 omega
Wife now has mk6 giffer spec auto 1.6 with electric hand brake.
Son has a mk4 astra 1.6 16v club which was my wife's father's last car. Only 66k on the clock.
And this is the car that brings me here.
Because if the Birmingham emmisions zone, he needs a different car. He's offered it to me for more than he paid for it.
I need* cruise control.
So I've come to research. If it's possible to retro fit it.

*by need I mean I've become soft in my old age. I'd rather have cruise control than electric windows or central locking..

If its a pre 2001, it will likely have a cable throttle (easy to check this). If so, cruise control is lot more hassle to fit as you will need to install a motor from an early Vectra or Omega. If the car is post 2001, it will be a fly by wire throttle and easier to fit cruise.
