    Hooded Centre Console and Sat Nav

    Hey guys,

    Quick question, If I wanted to get a new centre console with the sort of hooded top part etc (hopefully you know what I mean) would you be able to fit a sat nav into the hooded bit easily enough? I have seen some with little screens put in there etc but no sure how difficult or expensive that might be? I tried to find a guide on here for it or summin but no luck, Anyone done a how to on fitting this sort of thing before? I am not very tech savvy at all when it comes to cars but I would like to do it!

    Also where can you get the hooded Centre Consoles? Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Is that for the Sat Nav console surrounds? Coz Windrew's link has someone selling one for £100?!?!

    Cheers for the link buddy, Bit pricey that though for just a surround! lmao. Put me off doing it a bit! haha

    Ah ok, that makes sense! lol. I guess mine is half silver and half black at the moment then but without the hood right? Is that just how they come? Either Gunmetal or Half and half?

    They come in loads of colours. Silver/black as yours is at the moment just with a larger black hood, all black (which is what I have and sprayed it because the grey one was out of stock) anthricite and gunmetal grey

    They range from under £20 to about £80 from vauxhall

    Ah ok, thats not too bad then. Is there a part of the vauxhall website where you can order this sort of stuff? Or do I have to go into the dealership? You'd think they would have a parts site set up! lol.
