ED XR6 - Standard Cruise Control?

Hi All,

I'm currently looking at an ED XR6 - but it seems it doesn't have cruise control (well not that I have seen). Where are the cruise control "controls"? Could you knock CC off the build list to make it cheaper? Did manuals not come with CC?

I can't find doco on this on web sites....

AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: ED XR6 - Standard Cruise Control?

Cruise control is steering wheel mounted like in the middle of the wheel, theres two buttons.

I just had a look on the computer and the following was standard / optional on the ED.

Standard
Equipment 15" Alloy Wheels, 6 Speaker Stereo, ABS (Antilock Brakes), Body Colour - Bumpers, Body Colour - Grille, Central Locking - Remote/Keyless, Cruise Control, Engine Immobiliser, Headrests - Rear Integrated, Limited Slip Diff, Paint - Prestige, Power Door Mirrors, Power Steering, Radio Cassette, Spoiler - Rear, Sports Seats, Suspension - Sports
Optional
Equipment Air Conditioning , Body Kit - F&R Spoilers, Side Skirts, Re, Sunroof


It says Cruise was standard.

It says Cruise was standard.
But was Cruise standard/option/available with manual transmission?

So does that mean the car i'm looking at buying, if it doesn't have the cruise buttons on the wheel (it's a manual) then its unlikely its a real XR6?

I'm confused :(
