    I have a VX Berlina Series 1, is it possible to change the cruise and wiper arms to series 2 arms? If so is it costly? Is it the sort of job that can be done at home?

    The arms are round instead of square and the cruise control is alot easier to use

    These are a straight swap, you will need a philips head screwdriver & the new stalks.
    takes 5 minutes

    Yeah, what's the price... that's the golden question as always.

    Difference for those of you that ask.....The Series 1 has the push button cruise stalk in which you push for Cruise On...then push again for Cruise active and to increase speed
    series 2 you have the push button on the end of the stalk then turn the end of it forward....and i assume turn it forwards again and let go to increase speed.

    Why would you bother?? I have a series 1 VX and reckon that the control arm on these are the better of the two. The series II VX and VY at work I find require more movement of your hands off the steering wheel.

    I suppose at the end of the day you'd get used to it, but I say why bother..... :eek:

    Heaps better

    I changed mine on my series 2 VT Berlina over to a VY cruise arm, very easy and heaps better than the big square one that was on there. :drink:

    Cost

    Only cost me $40 from a wrecked vy. took around 10mins to fit, straight in no hassles, looks factory fitted & works like a charm. :drink:

    I'd take a wild guess and say the spare parts section of your local holden dealership. Should be able to both tell you how much they cost and get them for you! :D
