    Possible? Yes!

    Work required? Lots!

    Cost? Plenty!

    Worth it?............

    Yes if you want to make your car unique to you ;)

    whitenemises...amen.

    New bumper and associated pieces, washer bottle, wiring loom, piping, switch, console wood panel.
    Sure the light sensor is in the screen on that model, which means a new windscreen and wiring and relay/switch. Although on the auto headlamps i'm sure you could devise an easier method to this one.

    I understand what you mean and agree completely. I just wanted to make the OP think "is it worth it?". Possibly looking for a car that has those options already would make more ecconomic sense?

    BTW - Retro-fitting options that were originally available for your car does not then make it unique to you - but who am I to talk? (check my sig :D :crazy: )

    I agree with you about retro-fitting certain options that are available on other maybe newer models. However, although it may well make economic sense, since when has modding and financial sense gone hand in hand? :D

    If all mods made financial sense we would not talk about them on this forum.
