Cruise control retrofitted

Update: brought my 2010 e89 23i in for to retrofit cruise control. They had a littlr hickup with thr software (they had to reboot the software basically and install thr various modules one by one instead of an automatic update of all in one go). A part from that all went well and works flawless.

They are on my DropBox account ....

Part 1 >> https://www.dropbox.com/s/e1n1ia3mt0...%201.docx?dl=0

I hope that is of help to someone.
Just as a heads-up for purchasing your Cruise stalk assembly.....

DON'T just search for one that is labelled as e89 as sellers seem to increase the price of these just because it's a Z4.
Instead put in your search e90 as this should bring up the exact same stalk as for the e81, 82, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92 and 93. These are all the same fitment with the only other item to watch out for is the "A" symbol on the wiper stalk if you have auto wipers, if not then you just have the windscreen with the 3 dashers underneath symbol (if you have trouble here you CAN buy any stalk assembly but then have the wrong symbol and no LED)
Hope that helps.

EDIT - Attached photos showing the Standard cruise Stalks (Right side stalk with the 3 dashes) and the Auto Wiper stalks (Right stalk with the "A" on it and an LED)
You CAN actually run auto wipers with a standard stalk if that is all that you can find.

Thanks Mike. Install's gone well so far, just one part that i'm a little confused with. Am I copying all the new profiles into the pfl folder? There appears to be 3 expertmodus versions.
Cheers

Thanks, that confirms the software is working. Took me a while to workout why the .OCX component failed - even though im on a 32bit OS, all good now.

It's just the new profiles left for me to work out. A bit of trail and error might be in order. the downloaded profile named 'expertmodus (offen) shows up in NCS Expert as 'FSWPSW Manipulate' - which sort of matches Mike's guide.
