    Centre dash configuration

    I want to change my dash configuration from

    31454357-2-440-dash-3.jpg
    to this
    car_photo_273618.jpg

    I need the heater controls etc to moved down.

    Without me first taking it apart I would like to know if its relatively straight forward to do?

    Better to go rns-e as the radio antenna is identical to the radio fitted currently, the newer radio shown isn't fully compatible, so rns would benefit from added features & no need to swap out radio systems.

    Climate needs trimming, double din cage fitted, new buttons etc.

    If you want a supply/fit solution, give me a shout as I can do the lot

    You want to convert from LHD to RHD?

    Seriously though, you're be surprised that lots of these bits are different. For example, you will lose your cupholder, the one in the double din shot is a card/coin tray andthe cupholder does not fit without lots of modification.

    Yes but lets be honest, the cupholder isn't great anyway & its not the most ideal location to have it, right above/in front of your climate/radio.

    Ok maybe I should have mentioned I was planning to do a custom ipad mini install and getting rid of the concert unit.. I would want to move the climate down and utilise the space left in-between.

    Yes it must be why they dropped it in that configuration. It is ok on single din though as it doesn't prevent you using the radio. I only realise this after I'd modified a spare cupholder to fit! I still think it's a worthy addition for carrying a drink back from a takeaaway ocassionally rather than persistantly using it on the move.
