V36 Factory Cruise Control

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm looking at importing a V36 370GT and I'd like to know if these come with factory cruise control. With infiniti they have the intelligent cruise control that sense cars in front and maintain a safe distance away. Is this type of cruise control an option in Japan? how about the standard cruise control - is it factory standard?

I know V35 does not have factory cruise control.

Has anyone imported a V36 with factory cruise control?

Talking to my agent, cruise control was only available as an option on the later v36s. Even then they are very rare so expect to pay a double premium. Surprising for this class of car to not have something as simple as cruise especially since the American version has it.

Mine doesn't have it and its a glaring omission from an otherwise amazing car.

Keep looking for one that has cruise, as I spoke to Chris and it is over $1000 to get it done aftermarket....

I have one booked in as a mule to do in 3-4 days time. I have all the hardware here to do it.

Just a question Chris:

Is this hardware you have genuine Nissan hardware?

If yes, is this for the standard cruise control or for the intelligent cruise control?

Chris Rogers Audio Express Brisbane put an aftermarket Cruise Control in my newly imported V36. He used the Factory buttons and display lights so it appears exactly as a factory installed model. This is a non-adaptive cruise unit that does exactly what YOU request.

In the US the adaptive cruise is the most under used option installed in the V37 Infinitis (they also have a 'standard' cruise fitted which is what people use instead). I think cruise is only available there if you pick the Navigation Option as well and this make it a quite expensive add-on for something thats hardly used. It could be the same in Japan, I suppose? When I was looking for my V36 over 6 months you hardly ever saw a car with cruise.

Chis Rogers did a fantastic job and I highly recommend him if you want Cruise fitted to your V36.

not shown is the yellow cruise indicator above the middle orange display. I have already made a revision to this unit where yellow = cruise on - green = set.

as for costs $1K + . unit is CAN based and the fiddling I did to get the light in the dash took a fiar bit of time to do. its NOT a end user kit. I can supply it to a few shops around the country but do not expect the price to be any less.

peter supplied the buttons so his costs were less and his was also done at a serious discount for donating the car as a mule. (thanks for that!!)

the 260KM speedo was peter's request. I modded that one.

questions - ask.

Chris

Do you work closely with anyone in Sydney regarding the cruise. Also think the 260km speedo looks great.

Oh, and is thre speedo a US unit?

locally - Autostrada - 07-3852-6886

as for doing the OE controls - depends if someone in brisbane stocks them.
I no longer live in Oz and no longer work on these unfortunately. NOW if you want to import a full steering wheel with the controls on it then it can certainly be done by the people I listed above.

Thank you chris!

We have a OEM Steering wheel with the controls. i assume we have to get other parts though. Cant find any cruise control part numbers or boxes for it etc. Surely you dont just buy the steering wheel and it works haha.

you do need other parts. call the number I gave you and tell them you want them to install a cruise control for this car. tell them you have OE controls and need them installed as well.

 

this IS NOT a DIY job.
