    not too much work, all depends on if your wanting it fitting quickly or not, time and effort, same with everything. couple of modifications but nothing that the avid diy'er could not do

    used the lights from a gsi an the head light washers along with the lever switch under the back bumper about 4 hours work all in all but it did look a lot nicer

    CC looked hard so i did not give that a go

    CC is definately one of the harder ones... I wouldn't recommend it - however, if i had the opportunity, i personally would try at least You'd need EVERYTHING from a working system, hardest part is you'd have to follow the wiring diagram in the TIS to find every part you need........ definately hard.... Not sure if the motors on the air vents are simply bolted on - or if you need to mod airbox parts to fit them... Someone should find out Id try it if i could get all the parts for about $200 and guaranteed they all worked!

    I've followed TIS, and the wiring doesn't seem too bad! Most of them already go to the existing control panel IIRC.. I've not looked through EPC yet though, as my mate lost my copy

    I was considering challenging the task head on early this year, but funds are low & the house "must" come first

    Yeah, believe me, it's a lot harder than it LOOKS You need a new centre console piece and all... wiring, power, etc.... Unless vauxhall sells the looms to wire it?
