    Astra display unit/screen

    Hi guys, I've searched the forum but have had no luck with this query. I'm abit sad that my 2006 1.4 sxi only has a crappy 2line display, and I have been desperate to find out if the screen can be upgraded so it can tell me journey info and tyre pressure etc.

    Is it possible to change my basic astra 2 line display like this one
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Astra-h-displa...d=p3286.c0.m14

    into a 3line display like so
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA...d=p3286.c0.m14

    or even to the display that is better than the 3line display at all? If so what needs to be done and is it possible to do myself or tech2 via a vx dealer is neccessary?
    Thanks. Any help will be appreciated.

    Apologies if this has already been posted!!

    Nice looking out mate! But honestly I would rather have it on the original Vauxhall display or not at all. But thanks anyway.

    The displays on the Mk5's are 'married' to the stereo. Your options would be (only option 1 requires tech2)...

    1. Get your current display and stereo 'divorced' from each other (needs tech2) and then fit your new display (that would need to be divorced from it's original stereo) and then get the new diaplay and your current stereo 'married'. The link to the 3 line display above will NOT work with your standard stereo.

    2. Buy a 'married' stereo and display together - might be worth it for the better stereo (i.e. CD30MP3).

    3. Get an aftermarket stereo (unless you've got one already) and it doesn't need to be 'divorced'
