Mk3 one looks dated.

Why not do a Mk4 dash?

That would look 10 times better

for the dash to be insatlled u will need to do the following

You need to cut a lot from the sides as the corsa dash is round and the astra is oval. Best thing is to cut a small piece and try to fit.
You neet to cut a V out of the metal lower part of the dash, because the dash is 4 cm wider.
It is possible that the dash only fits with a lot of force on the sides.
No prob, close the doors for a few days and the dash will keep its shape.
Best way to work also is with your front window out. Easier to fit the dash.
