none of the later interiors are a straight up fit..... a lot of work involved in fitting them..... only part that changes over easily is the console

I have an AU console in my XH which has slightly improved the look over the standard one, and now i got cup holders :lol:


Other than that you could always put an XH instrument cluster in which is like the EL ones and the XH surround which just gives you nicer switches for you lights.

Problem with power windows is the AU console doesnt have the switches at all. Im not sure about fitting it to an EB but the thing just slid straight under my dash and the holes all lined up which was good. I originally tried a EL one but because there sort of intergrated into the dash i had to hack it apart and it ended up looking like dogs balls

Got any pics of it in the car to post up or email through to me?

nah sorry i dont have a digital camera........just go for it. Go down to your local wreckers and get the crappiest au centre console out of an X taxi. throw it in and see what you think of it then get a decent one. That way it wont cost you as much. If i can get my hands on a camera this week ill throw some up though
