That looks sweet. :) Just need a lighter or a lighter blank to fill the hole. I love the extra dials on the M and the heated seats that you have too would be nicer than (stupid IMHO) air con that I have. That radio looks nice too, though I don't really listen to mine (expect when I'm working on the car and I switch it on).

Makes my plain black interior look a bit boring. :)

Thanks folks,I like the Becker head units as they look retro while having Bluetooth and iPod control .
Need to extend the wires to the obc to reposition it under the arm rest.
Have a brand new extended leather set to fit but missing the airbag cover if any one knows of how to get a tannin red one ?
By evening could see all the lights work :)

Out of interest did you look to see if the OBC fits in the instrument holes? If I was do this I'd like to keep it in the centre hole and leave out the clock.

That Becker does look cool 8-) good jod :lol:

As ours is the pre facelift the obc is rectangular, it is only round on the facelift, I have seen a thread about the insides being the same so can be fitted to a round case if needed but I think the clash in styles means it would not look right . Planning on extending the wires so it goes in the centre console under the arm rest. The reds do not look the same in the picture but they match well. Makes the cabin look so much better, total cost was £200 excluding the oil change that had to be done due to fitting a sump plug sensor.
