Any idea on the difficulty/ cost to add a cruise control? Comes in handy for the motorways with average speeding control..

They are just Vauxhall/Opel stalks which you can buy easily. “Might” already be active in the ECU. 

Not very hard at all.

Thanks Mark. Anyone experience with this, if it could work plug & play or an update for the ECU would be needed?

BTW, if anyone has a partnumber that would help. There are a few different types available.

Great, thanks for the info. Does it require an ECU update or just the physical install?

I think it needs programming to turn it on.

It does indeed need activating in the ECU, as I found out after trying my luck installing the stalk myself, which then proceeded to do naff all.

Ok, so just diy install and have it actived at some point by the Lotus dealer? No issue driving around with the new stalk for a while prior to ECU upload right?

It is a Lotus.

So no.

Ah, so I can't replace it a while prior to the actual ECU upload? I mean, I understand the function for cruise control would not work yet but do the other functions also not work all of a sudden?? It's basically the same stalk with an addition right??

Yes you can, I did exactly that. It still works as an indicator stalk and high beam flasher, just with inactive cruise control buttons.
