After Market Crusie Control?

Am looking at purchasing a low km 1995 318is. The only drawback is that it does not have cruise control. Does anyone no if there are any after market kits or if anybody has installed a cruise control from another car? Thanks

It wasn't. It was standard on 325 only, at least in 1994

Anyway, it is possible to install OEM cruise control that by pulling all the necessary stuff from a wrecked E36. Here is a list of what you need, but wiring part might be different on the 1994

thanks guys...looks like it it can be done with a little work. I have a 95 530i parts car and once the snow clears I'll see if I can get my parts off of this car.
FYI-The 95 518i I just purchased (but have not picked up yet) was a LHD imported from Japan with a M3 bumper and some fantastic sport seats, which may be why it doesn't have cruise.
I'll try to do a post once I get into this a little further.

Is it 518i or 318is or are you talking about a completely different car?

oops--sorry, It is a 318is. The parts car is a 95 530i that I picked up as many interior parts work with an e34 M5 I have as well.
