Okay CM. I asked my dealer on friday if it was available and was it a reliable install/option? They said yes, no problem at all... £189 fitted. I ordered it...so, we will see! My dealer is a very large one who I do reckon have some pretty skilled technicians. Depends on whether the kit is really available to them though i suppose...will keep you posted.

Waste of money in my opinion... your right foot goes up & down you know ;) I actually enjoy in a perverse way the average speed cameras... it's all about feathering that throttle.... & then booting it after you've gone past the last camera & watching the world go backwards :D

I'm not going to use cruise on short journeys, I'll be having too much fun! I travel York to Gatwick reguarly though and at one point there's a 16 mile stretch of 50mph average speed check :roll: (with nobody ever working on the roadworks and the third lane looking fine to me ). Why dont they do a mile at a time? Don't worry, I'll still drop it into 4th and boot it 16 miles down the road :D .

Is that on the M1 just after Nottingham (travelling Northbound)... I remember going up it last month at 8 at night & it was dead & I still had to crawl along @ 50 :evil:
