    Ok, so no ones fitted any

    But where would be a good idea? Or where would you put so it wouldn't look tacky etc...

    Here's where i was thinkin (if not hidden) marked on pic in BLUE RED & GREEN...



    Also had an idea to do away with the ashtray internals and make a flat blanking plate, then having them under there. so the lid still has to come open to switch them on


    Also while on the dash... does anyone know why my ashtray and gaitor trim, even cd player are different colour... are they out of a certain spec or model?!?

    The ashtray may cause problems as the diagnostic port is underneath - what about using the cubby hole just in front, at least putting it back to standard would be cheap & simple

    Sorry, should have said the pull out part would be blanked so the switches will still be removable to get to the port, remove dash trims etc...

    Me too, but the cd player still has the standard markings above the fade buttons etc so cant see how. they've not been masked... and if so its a good colour match. matt silver if anything...

    If sprayed and someone knows of a decent paint code to match the SRI trim i'll do the lot again as there's some marks on the standard pieces...

    The SRi gear surround has a chrome lip on it. The HU is form a different car as it looks like its been uprated from the 2005, possibly an Omega.

    Was on it when bought, but again its probably painted... there is no oval space for the irmy sticker, i think its just the domed sticker bought separately and stuck on...
