Re: Dash Swap... (Darrsh)

So Frank ( G60ING ) was going to do this as well?

Maybe you meant me.



And yes, there is a LOT of work involved in a TT dash swap. Mounting is a PAIN. Wiring is a PAIN. Fitting is a PAIN. It looks great if you can get it to work right but you have to be confident of yourself or whoever is working on the dash for you. It needs to be cut a little bit so it will fit correctly. After you've shelled out $1000 for the dash, that first cut has got to fill you with anxiety.

I haven't completely canned the idea of a full TT dash swap but this "conversion" has been a TON of work. I'd hate to see how much actual work a full swap is!

I think he ment G60driver.
Now I didn't think the TT dash was all that great until I sat in a TT and now I really dig the whole interior but I doubt I'll swap one into my car as I like my stock setup. No maybe when I have $$$=job I'll swap a 20VG60 into something and consider a TT dash

Re: Dash Swap... (VARSIXC)

I don't have part numbers handy but I just ordered them from the dealer. The vents DO close by twisting the trim ring (just like on the TTs) but it's taken a VERY long time to get this done and still keep the vents functional (open and close). Lots of custom fabrication and trial-and-error. It's really been a nightmare but it's almost done so i'm starting to feel better about it.
