Fair bit of glue, hacksawing, drilling and thought I'd guess.

206 dash are ghay, about on par with the corsa C dash. crapy plastic shite.

the one your thinking of has a MK3 astra dash which has been done a few times. supposed to be 'reasonably' easy. as it esentially the same as the corsa just slightly different

not the one that people are talking about but good pics none the less.

you can see it is essentialy the same dash with a few changes done before the corsa was produced.

MK2 astra used many parts as the nova, and the MK3 was kinda between the nova and the corsa if you understand what im saying.

Wanted to try the MK4 or corsa C first, but the MK4 is TOOO wide for the corsa

Even the MK3 is 2 wide

http://users.pandora.be/neophyterulez/20-07-2004/00000010.JPG

The dash is really pressed between the 2 sidepanels.

I think it is 3-4 cm wider on each side.

First time I fitted the dash, when I opened my door, I saw the dash moving.
Had 2 keep my doors closed for 1 week to give the dash the good shape.

Also not 2 mension the heater, you will spend lotsa time and polyester to get the heater working right

But this is possible to do.

Think it is impossible to get the MK4 fitted.

But for my oppinion, like the MK3 dash more than the MK4

i love the 206 dash just like others like astra dash! just personal preference really init!

went round scrappy looking at diffent dashes and 206 was the maddest kind of one in the style i liked and it goes really far back to where the screen is so could have been cut to shape of corsa dash!

lupo ones are nice but to flat looking just like the backlit dials - hehe

You can try to make the change, but keep in mind that if it doesn't work, you can still put your original dash in.
