I have an 2010 E89 without cruise control. I had a bmw specialist read-out the car and he confirmed that cruise control was already in the software. The guy was not willing to take the risk of working with second hand parts I found on ebay and I was not willing to take the risk of insisting on that and having to pay twice, so he ordered the new parts (extra cc lever requires complete unit to be replaced) and will retrofit cruise control in two weeks time. The intervention will take a couple of hours. Costs incl labour and parts EUR 750,- in The Netherlands.
It's a lot of money but I find myself constantly checking the speedo and after about 4 hours of driving I get cramp in my right leg because of constantly backing up the throtle a notch. So it's worth it for me.

Hopefully this will help someone else too. I'll report back after the intervention.
