Without taking all that shit apart, can someone tell me wether I can upgrade my on board computer?

Is it plug and play? Or do I need to add wires for all the extra buttons?

I have the basic 8 button? unit. And I want to upgrade to the big boy with all the buttons.

You need to add wiring and sensors I think the dealers do a retro-fit kit but at what price I don’t know, If you do buy it make sure they print the fitting instructions as they normally don’t come with it.

If you have a friend that is really good with wires, it is not that hard of a deal. However, if you are not good with wiring schematics or diagrams, then definately steer clear. I think even most mechanics would steer clear of it. I've been considering still doing it, but for most of the year I can not have my car out of commision for a few days to do it.

the little ones are called time and temp... because that is all they show. the 6button has F/C temp, Time, Date and Memo. That's it.
