Just did this today... bit of a ball ache but pleased with the end result. My advice to anyone thinking about doing the same would be to pay someone else to do it haha Time for a pint or 3

I relocated the electric wing mirror switches to the Hawkeye console by fitting them to the lid of a maplins electronis box (pretty close colour and texture match of the console) I then modified the console where the DCCD controlls usually are so it would fit in properly. This is how the end result looked

Ive been wondering the same, plus the connectors for the A/C, the demist and the re-circ ?

I nearly bought one cheap recently but reckoned it wouldnt be possible so binned the idea.

Cheers jonny Smile All the heater controlls and the electrics just plug straight into the new sockets and work as they should so that's the easy part really, I needed to replace the handbrake though

The handbrake on mine was standard STI MY04 but that handbrake doesn't fit into the STI MY05 onwards centre console, its sits at a different angle to the newer ones so needed to swap it to a MY05 onwards handbrake, fairly simple to do though and only cost 25 quid for a new handbrake second hand so I wouldn't let it put you off

So to avoid me ripping out old handbrake for no reason! Will the one I have fit the facelift consol robbo? Is it same as yours...

I'm not sure to be honest matey, I've read threads of people changing their consoles on scoobynet where they didn't have to change the handbrake but I had to change mine so its your call mate, I'm happy to give you the tenner back if it doesn't fit though as its only fair

Chuffing McChuff - thats a lot more than I thought I needed. Ive chucked the idea on the backburner for now as I need to calm down after some nifty spending of late, but I may take a look at this later in the year.

And I can see that yours has come out of a left hand drive, same as I was looking at. No probs with handbrake etc ?

Sorry mate, this isn't my actual console is just a picture I found on the net of the parts needed haha, mine came out of a UK Hawkeye STI. A left hand drive one wouldn't fit a UK model as the bolt holes for the handbrake would be on the wrong side

Greigy, do me a favour and stop putting the syringe full of heroin on a plate and offering it to me.

Remind me to kick you very hard and very directly in the dangly parts next time we meet. Evil or Very Mad Laughing
