    Default A waste of £40 or not???

    Do you think I am just wasting £40 by fitting a fuel comp & indicator stalk out of a 2004 SRi 2.2 petrol to a sxi 2.2Dti??? Will it work??

    it would depend on the display and if your car has the trip computer already installed.. if you're just thinking of putting a switch on to make it work, i'd think it was unlikely..It may be possible to enable it via Tech2, but the stalk you need is the right hand side one..the left hand side is cruise control/indicators, the right hand side is Computer/wipers..

    the normal trip computer uses a different display.. but i'm not saying it's impossible.... just a little more to it than just plugging a stalk in.. dependant on the cars loom, it may not even be wired for trip computer....

    It is the full computer unit and the bigger screen From between the middle vents that would be fitted as well as the stalk, it just seamed a good price for the bigger computer unit & stalk. Just my luck. I should have gone for the 3.0cdti sri.

    It can't be done, well not easily anyway. I tried it on one of my 1.8 LSs, they have the same TID display as your SXI as opposed to the one you want to fit, the bigger GID.

    The plug on the loom that goes to the TID is different from the one required for GID.

    Hope that hasn't confused you too much.

    It can be done but will require loom swaps and Tech 2.
