    Just ducked in at my local friendly scrappy and replaced my handbrake cover that I lost (don't ask). They had a facelift car and I asked the guy what he would want for the centre console trim, buttons, and climate unit.

    £50 was the asnwer, is this a good price? How much of a b1tch is it to do as I'm expecting a load of soldering. It would be nice to have but if it's major ballache I can live with what I have

    I'd say thats a pretty damn good price for everything.

    Make sure you get the fog light relay, and the soldering isnt all that bad. Climate will just plug in, bar you need to add a wire for illumination. Its just the switches you need to sort.

    You'll also want the drivers knee bolster, as it contains the headlamp adjuster, and both parts of the console, as the bit round the handbrake is different too.
