Thumbs up



Quick question: Is is possible to replace my 11 button computer unit with the full On Board Computer, simply by swapping units?

Is the process more involved than that? I know models with the OBC have a button on the blinker lever... does this lever need to be replaced also?

Basically is the process straignt forward, or is it more work than what it's worth?

How much would I be looking at paying for an OBC with all pixels working - if there is such a thing

Thanks,
Andrei

I just went through the same thing. I ended up buying an 18 button obc on ebay, but come to find out, it didnt fit my car. So i had to throw it back up on ebay. I'm also looking for another working obc, and was quoted $252 from Bavauto.

hope that helps
