    How hard is it to change over the centre console and switchs etc from the older b5's to a newer facelift type?? Is the climate control able to be swapped over too? I have both cars in the driveway so all the parts are here for me if its possible.

    you need to swap the entire console, front and rear sections and the rear cage part that supports everything.

    You also need to transfer over the climate unit.

    Are you breaking the facelift? What engine does it have?
