My just purchased 2017 Metris came without cruise control. Mercedes is not helpful in retrofitting. Anyone accomplish it and what parts and numbers used? I do know coding is then required

There were a couple threads discussing this I don't have links, you'll have to do a search if you want to find them. But the consensus seemed to be that it's not possible.

There used to be general cruise control kits that involved strapping magnets to an axle with a pickup, tapping into a vacuum line and tapping into a brake light line. I have no idea if they still exist or if that would even work on a Metris.

check a vito forum in the uk. i recall someone who said he only needed to buy the control stalk. don't remember if it was a 447, though.

Thank you. I have seen an installation on the Vito 447 as you said. The concern is if it can be programed on the US version and the part number for the control. I have encountered 2 different numbers. I had hoped someone has gone through the install. I do know that it has been done on the Sprinter without issue.

I am in the same situation. I have a Metris without cruise control. I have had no luck at the dealership or with any aftermarket units. Any and all details in getting this accomplished are appreciated.
