    Default Dash Upgrade...

    I was wondering about upgrading my 2002 2.2 Elite dash to the more stylish Sri dash.
    Can anyone tell me if this is possible and is there anything i need to do or know before i do it?
    The dash im thinking of getting is from a 2005/2007 model


    Many thanks, Mark..

    hi
    if you upgrade your dash you will not be able to upgrade steering wheel to the facelift.
    the clocks will have to be tech 2'd in or you will loose some functions.
    radio will have to stay (no cd30) due to cambus.
    speedo display (1 lcd or 2 lcd) will have to stay the same or all lot of money and wiring/display to sort this out.
    hope this helps.

    Thanks for the replies lads, so the outcome is this will fit but ill lose some of my display functions?

    Will a earlier sri dash do the same or will that comply better? i.e a 2002-2005 car!

    I like the chrome ring look of the Sri`s so is there any other options i can go down?

    Mark..

    Another member took the chrome rings from from a set in a scrappy and stuck them onto his existing clocks - looked really good.
