I did not put a "stalk" on mine. Talking to Dave Koski, who has cruise in his car and a stalk on the left side of the column, he hits hit when he gets in the car.
I thought about putting it on the dash, but then decided to go with the RF transmitter one, that you velcro on to the steering wheel, but you can take off when doing a track day or if are not using cruise. I only plan to use the cruise on long trips. I plan to keep it in the glove "pouch or case" when I am not using it..
I did try a right hand stalk. But the ignition switch and stuff got in the way.
Thanks. I was thinking it would be possible to use the actual stalk that Lotus uses, which would incorporate both the current functions all Eliges have, as well as the proper buttons to select the various cruise control functions. But, as you probably already know, it only is designed to work with the 1ZR engine, and in addition - and I didn't bother to put them in my post - there are about a dozen other parts you need, including a different ABS and TC module, different pedal box, clevis pins, etc. I did find what I think are all the parts, but to try to retrofit that to any previous models would be difficult, if not impossible. It seems that you have a much better and realistic solution.
To SwingLo's post, I have thought about doubling the thickness of my window to reduce noise! I suspect so much would still leak in around the frame, trailing edge of the roof, etc. that it probably wouldn't be worth it, even if it could be done, although some have tried covering the window with a thick blanket just for test purposes, and I believe they reported some improvement.
