we need five people to participate in order to buy the rostra units at 123 dollars each.
so far we have these people:
1. Kip (b1shmu63)
2. Jim (Jim Holmgren)
3. Ricky Suiter (Rick)
4. -Otmar- (otmar)
I no longer own an Insight, the dealer chose to purchase it back from me after I discovered some sever discrepancies with the vehicle and the documentation. You guys have the five people necessary to make the group buy!! Somebody send me a PM and I will give you my contacts info and you can organize this Group Buy. See my other post in General Discussion for a warning and a story about my long gone Insight.
I am getting ready to install cruise control onto my Insight. I know many people who have not already installed the cruise want one, and it seems that everybody who has it is extremely happy with it.
I am big on maintaining a stock look, and in this instance maintaining a stock look is going to come out cheaper than going aftermarket. I am going to use an S2000 cruise switch, adapter plate, harness and assorted hardware to assemble my interior cruise unit. I will then hook that up to the Rostra Cruise control unit that everybody loves.
Have been able to source all of the parts for the interior for 38.58 (includes new plastic, new switches, new screws, new harness, new bracket). I think this price might even drop by a dollar or two more If I was to order it in a group of five or ten.
I have also found the Rostra Cruise unit for 150 dollars.
Since some of you migth not like the idea of cutting into the car’s wiring harness I even sourced the VSS tap that goes in the engine bay – it will cost 40 dollars, also this could go down by a couple of dollars if I order 5 or 10.
The total price for the cruise cotrol without the VSS adapter would be 193.58 plus shipping and B.S. so about 198 dollars **before any discounts because of the group buy** with the adapter the price would start at 228.58.
So, if you would be interested in this speak out. If you guys aren’t interested I will pursue this by my lonesome
I think to make this worthwhile in pursuing we would need at least 5 people.
