    I've done it, took about 2 hours to get everything out, done at a sensible rate... Get a Haynes manual, it was very helpful and spot on with the instructions and pictures.

    Dont rush into it!!! i have and now i have a dash out of a b7 to go into my b6 and the passenger airbag frame is different so unless you get the airbag with it i wouldnt bother, the brackets that bolt to either side of airbag are different also unless this dash ive been sold isnt from saloon :S im trying to make a gd dash from my old one and the new one, its not easy, im going to have to swap the brackets somehow,

    Anyone got any suggestions???

    they are easy to do, take your time and get your nose under the dash to see the bolts

    well the b7 one isnt unless you get the passenger airbag with it, and even then there is one bracket that is different, i damaged the b7 one i bought but managed to source a b6 avant breaking locally so got a straightforward one for 50 notes
