Using a M30 cruise control set on an M88/3

Post by Stoffie » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:37 pm

Hi there,

I have a chance to buy a complete NOS M30 cruise control set and was wondering whether there were many differences compared to what's in an M635CSi or M6.

I imagine the connection to the throttle linkage would definitely be different, probably some mounting brackets as well.

Does anyone have some experience with retro fitting such a set on an M88/3?

Would the M88/3 specific bits still to be found anywhere still?

Any pointers would be much appreciated!
The M88/3 was all about power, no cats. At idle the raw fuel from the exhaust will make your eyes water like an old V-8 powered muscle car's exhaust did.

I guess nobody has any experience with what I'm asking #-o

Could anyone help with some detailed pictures of the cruise control components in the engine bay of an M6/M635CSi ?

I'm sure there are some members with such a setup [-o<

I think I'll take my chance and get the set anyway and see what's usable or not.

I’m pretty sure they came with it as an option. I guess the big question is weather the 055 ecu can handle it or whether it has its own ecu. All the m30 basted hardware technically should work. Mines under a car cover at the moment so I’ll confirm whether there are 2 postions on the throttle body mechanisms or 1. Also check perhaps Realoem site with your age and see if any cruise control specific parts come up.
