I know APR have devised a way to access the ECU to enable cruise to work in conjunction with a retro fitted OEM cruise control indicator stalk.
In the UK, cruise control is an extra cost option on all Golfs (including the V6 4Motion) and I didn't see the need for it when I bought my car, but I recently decided I would quite like to have it fitted. Anyway, I contacted the UK importers for APR and they can do this no problem. The cost is £195 (around US$300), but it's probably the best way as it uses 100% factory parts.
Trust this helps.
If the throttle is elec. controlled (are they all nowdays ?)
It is just change the turn indicator switch+ wire to the box + reprogramming.
I asked local VW dealer (Finland) and price is approx 250Euro, original VW.
Crazy car tax here in Finland, if I would have ordered it from the factory, price would have been 640Eur
