Aftermarket Cruise Control

I recently purchased a 2000 323i and one of the features I'm missing more than I thought I would is cruise control. Anyone know of an aftermarket cruise that I can add?

No cruise control, and to be honest I have never used cruise control in any car I have driven

Wow, didn't think that a "luxury" vehicle would come w/o one. I know my E46 has one. And yea, I use it sometimes on my commute, to save gas.

Current Ride
2007 Acura TSX w/Navi

Past rides:
1999 BMW 328i E46 Dinan Stg. 1
1989 Mercedes 190E 2.6
1980 Mercedes 240D

The answer is....

1)Don't get cruise control because of better mileage?
2) get a new stearing wheel? (will that really work?)

I'm confused.

He's right, you can get mileage with your foot vs cruise. Cruise doesn't have a concious view of the road, where you can back off in advance or accelerate at a milder pace.
