    Yep. And aidy, upto now 25 for the cage with hazard button. Just need the trim to finish it off and ESP/airbag buttons as I believe they sit back.

    400 for the LED rnse, 20 for the adapters.

    Hardest part I'd say was getting the old cage out! The new one flew in. All in took me around 2.5-3 hours

    Sounds good, where did you manage to pick the cage up from for so cheap? eBay? What did you do with the aircon unit then, trim it down? Good time, took me an hour today to fit a Dension haha

    It's pretty straight forward, I only used a guide on where the bolts was in the cage. At one point I was expecting to have loads of bolts left over haha
