    mat do u have pics of this? and what size screen would fit in?
    im guessing it'd be good for preventing glare on the screen, with it being set-in a bit.

    I think Ross was going to do it before he sold his Astra.

    Ive asked my local car audio place and they said no problem to doing it, however no matter how hard I have looked I cannot find a wrecked astra with the sat-nav dash in.

    Gadge you are correct I have done this mod on a few friends cars and am currently in the process of doing it to my car. No pics of my mates cars but I do have pics of a few that have done this mod.

    No need to get one from a wrecked Astra. By chance while getting the Sat Nav console for my Astra I asked about the Matt Chrome one and hey it cost £10 including Vat. Okay so it is only matt chrome up to the centre air vents but as I am chnging it to look like my old one ie. double din I am not fussed and cosidering the black one costs £50 or so it's a bargin.

    Cash I have pm'ed you, any further questions give me a shout.

    so...

    I just went to the my local Vauxhall place and explained, I wanted the 'dull chrome centre console' out of the mark 4 astra with sat nav. after some thinking, the bloke found it

    the black one was £35 inc. (29.45 + VAT)
    the dull chrome one was £12 inc. (10 + VAT) (thanks for the tip-off on this - vauxhall pricing mistake Basil)

    anyway he seemed a bit confused, so i said...

    "oh, I want it because I want to fit a TV to the top"

    to which he responded...

    "you need to get out a bit more dont you"

    ****
