Looking for a mechanic to retrofit some extras to my Audi

I got an Audi and would like to add some extras to the car - ie cruise control.

Does anyone know a good mechanic to help with this?

Dealer only then, unless you want to void your warranty, anything added would need to be programmed into the cars ecu's as well so would need to be a specialist with the correct gear, or main dealer.

They still sell cars without CC?
as bigblue said, dealers only . these new cars are way to complicated to add things yourself

Yeah, German cars, you have to pay for every little add on.

it depends on what he's retro-fitting, surely?

If it's a sun visor strip reading "Lorraine and Darren" then I'm sure he could do that himself.

"Things" is pretty general. And that's what you wrote.
