    You can change the screen yes.

    Best thing to do is look for a 3 line MFD on eBay, along with a stereo its paired to. Its not quite as easy I don't think as plug and play, you will more than likely need someone with Tech2 to be able to match the headunit/MFD to your car.

    Your display is 2 line as it has the 2 buttons at the bottom of it. In literal terms, your display will have 1 line showing time and outside temperature, then the bottom line with show the radio.

    A 3 line display is literally what it says, 3 lines, one for date/temp, other for radio and last for day display, I THINK.

    Thats ok. Your stereo and mfd you have spare, were they divorced from the old car before they were removed? You will need tech2 for sure to pair the new stuff up.

    My car is only lowered the 20mm as standard that SXi's are. It is entirely up to you what you put on your car, obvioulsy if you want to lower it a set amount and not adjust height, springs, if you want to be able to raise it or lower it if needed then coils.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have TwinTop alloys ready to go on the car, or do you still need to get some?

    Just wondered.

    They are pretty rare, so just wondered how you were going to get hold of a set, that is all.

    At first when I got mine, I loved the look of them on the car they came off of, put em on mine and wasn't 100% sure, but they are growing on me big time, and fact I don't think theres another 5 door hatch with them on makes it all the better.
