    Mk4 dash into Mk3?

    Just been thinking about it really, i want to do something with the interior. Just need to find out if it will go in and look factory fitted? Anyone got any ideas on how difficult it will be to swap over, will the heater bits fit etc.
    Loads of help needed.
    Thanks

    Best thing to do is go down you local scrappies for a couple of hours, rip out the mk4 dash and place it in a mk3, that way you can get an idea of what needs cutting and shutting.

    Thats what I do
    Cant Think of Anything Funny To Say

    Pm Lee69 on here, he's put a MK4 dash in his MK3. You need a special convertor for the speedo and stuff, to convert from analog to digital. It's not quite straightforward!
