Hey guys,

I need to know where to get a crusie control unit from and who installs them in Melbourne. Im not really looking at paying heaps for it with all the bells and whistles just something that works.

Cheers
Jamie

You can buy the aftermarket DIY kits from most auto part shops for around $200-$300 They are easy to install yourself and work ok. I did one years ago on an EB falcon and is still going today. The controls can either be a stork on the steering column or a panel on the dash.

Yeah I would do that, but I have a really bad habit of snapping s**t when I touch it.....like a broke my headlight when putting a bulb in because I managed flicking off one of those plastic knobs that hold the metal clasp in, just simple s**t like that, so for the sake of $60 extra Id pay someone to do it for me DIFM instead on DIY
