    Default Fitting a TomTom XXL into centre dash

    Hi all,

    I posted this in the technical part but I think it is more of a modification..

    I recently bought an 07 Veccy 1.8 Petrol Design.

    Will be fitting a Double din HU with in 2 weeks.

    And as title suggests a tomtom in the centre dash.



    Bit tricky to solder in the leads that will go to the switch (awaiting in post). But it looks like a nice fit. (a Dremel comes in handy once in a while)

    Nope, I find it depressing watching my mileage go down. I've got a fuel gauge for that

    Fair enough!

    I was tempted to fit something similar but like my computer too much!

    I'm keeping it for when I sell the car. As I will keep H/U.

    Update.

    Filled and sanded.



    Went to a local car paint specialist and bought a spray can that was extremely close to the original colour. (hope it looks alright) Got to filler primer it and wet sand it (although I doubt I will use any water).

    Then hopefully painting on the weekend.
