    I am looking to retrofit Cruise Control (CC) into my 1999 E36 328i M-Sport Convertible with Automatic Gearbox ....however checking out the wiring diagrams I have one query :

    As my car is an automatic I obviously do not have a clutch pedal (duh !).

    If you check out the CC wiring diagram do I simply leave pin 2 of the CC computer/module floating - i.e. not connected to anything , cos in a E36 with a Manual gearbox Pin 2 of the CC Module is hooked up to the Clutch Switch, which when closed links pin 2 of the CC module to ground/earth.
    Or....does the CC Module require subtly different programming for an Automatic....

    AEGS (Automatic Electronic Gearbox Control aka EGS) is the control system for the auto gearbox. When the wiring diagrams say "without EGS" they mean manual transmission so you wire accordingly.
