Is it possible to fit cruise control to the Zetec diesel as an aftermarket accessory??

I'm looking to buy a year old or so diesel Focus, changing from a Peugeot, quite like the cruise control, hence the question?

Cheers!

I'd say buying it with cruise factory fitted is far less of a mine field

I fitted one of theirs to my Focus a few years ago. It was fairly simple job (take into account I'm a truck mechanic) and has worked fine except the cable that pulls the accelerator pedal down needs to be fitted and adjusted quite finely. Later drive by wire should be a lot better and even easier to fit.
Cost is around 300 I think.
I'm looking at getting one for the Fusion, or possibly swapping the Focus one onto it.
I love CC especially on long motorway journeys. We are thinking of going to the south of France in the Fusion next year, ;) so I'll have to get it sorted for that.
