I have a 1999 AU XR6; I would like to know if it were possible to change the centre of the Dash where the stereo is located, to the later Series II or III layout? I know it means changing all the control knobs for the vent, heating and air con controls etc, but can it be done without too much drama?

Cheers.

wrong... :D
the heater box is different, so you would have to pull the dash out and exchange the heaterbox(the get it re gassed, then i assume the dash wiring is different so you might as well put a fairmont dash in with requires the same amount of work...

LOL your right, I think it best to replace with a Fairmont Dash...I must admit, I really hate the EGG Shape...it does have that Taurus feeling to it high?!
