Hi again. Is it possible to install the new aluminium surround dashboard fascia from a MY05 car into a MY04 S60R? My S60R has the HU-803 headunit and I'm not sure if you can have the 803 in the MY05 models? If not, then I guess the holes won't be correct for the MY05 fascia to fit over my 803 headunit?<p>Could I at least have the gear selection surround changed to the aluminium trim?

Re: MY05 dashboard on MY04 (Token)

You would need new cubby, an HU-850, new A/C panel, new button panel in order to match up to '05 silver surround dashboard, those panels are completely different to fit the bezel not present in '04. <p>To do the aluminum look space ball surrond, you need an ENTIRE new center console armrest, and may need new dashboard. Someone actually started that project, but I don't know if they ever managed to get all the parts. <p>For either job, you are looking at thousands of dollars. Now if you found a wrecked '05, maybe feasible. <p>You could just paint the panel under the spaceball surround like vizwiz did. He posted last month on doing that. <p>I'm thinking about painting that and painting the vent surrounds either silver or titanium grey to spruce up inside.

And I don't think the 850 will match with the 04's electronics
