    i notice the other day that mine had broken one of the tiny tiny hinges had snapped.
    i was shocked to see that it was made from a 'orribly cheap flimsy bit of tat and i'm surprised it lasted as long as it did!

    read somewhere that you cant just swap out the accessory panel for the smokers one as the radio panel is a diufferent shape at the base so it won't fit. If you do buy it and get it to work please post on here. I would like to change mine to the smokers type as you then get somewhere to keep your coins safe
    Be Happy

    Me too

    I shure would like to know how this ended, broke mine recently and was wundering if i could buy a new one.

    My Opel dealer (I'm Dutch so it's Opel for me ) said it would cost a fortune as the entire outlet would have to be changed for a new one.
    I cant imagine this is true.
