  1. In mid Alpril, Rob Cook posted a query on this subject re his 53 Vectra (

    It may be of interest to the group, that my local agent says this is
    unavailable on my 02 Zafira Elegance - only available as a factory fitted
    extra when new.

    They were , though, able to hook me up to cruise control as the wiring was
    pre installed anyway, [but the extra facility not ordered by the original
    buyer], for the cost of a new steering wheel stalk + the cost of fitting =
    peanuts compared to Vauxhall's price for cruise as an extra when new !!! [
    I've had cruise for over 15 years and use it at some time on every journey]

    The Automatic Zafira 1.8 seems to return about 30 mpg for the mixture of
    journeys I do.

    Like an Automatic Corsa we had before, first gear "whistles" and is most
    noticeable at change of gear to 2nd, and I have assumed it is par for the
    course on this gearbox.

  3. I assume you mean how much cruise? = £105 fitted by Vauxhall agent, includes
    part £26.75. Labour £63 ( they do have to remove steering wheel /airbag to
    change stalk) VVVAAATTT£15.71 = total £105.46. As an extra, new, Vauxhall
    seem to want £400. I assume the wiring is standard & includes this "loop".
    May only work for "Elegance"
