i've never seen the au dash in a el, as they are ugly, apart from the fairmont one.
But i've seen the au console which is a good looker, shouldnt be to hard.

Scratch the ba then. I don't know I'd rather the au xr 6 dash over the el one simply due to the colour. And I don't want to spray the el One will make it look cheap.

The AU has the worst looking dash. Copy the EL GT dash colors it will look heaps better

EL with standard grey will still look better than the AU black style.

If you want to change the colour of the EL vinyl dash, get a spare dash from the wreckers and get it re-wrapped in the vinyl colour you want...might cost you a fair bit, but definitely won't look crap. I was planning this, but laziness prevails rather quickly.

The 'Search' button is your friend.
It's an XH, but the same principle. I am looking for a decent AU console to fit in my EF wagon. But ATM it's pretty low on my list of priorities.
