That would be greatly appreciated Rhino!!! I am interested to know what pieces were easy and which were/are impossible to find or were cost prohibitive.

What's the difference between US dash and Euro dash?
The US dash requires more padding on it per safety regulations. The padding is suppose to serve as extra protection and stop people from submarining under the dash in the event that they aren't wearing a seatbelt in an accident. The Euro, and apparently every other country except our received the dash without the additional padding. It has a more streamline look that many like as well as a storage cubby perfect for your wallet. Here is a very good link on the conversion and the pros/cons

Eurodash

based on this link, leather parts/components cost $1,993.03 from Tischer - ouch. . .
Informative! :M5thumbs:

And Expensive! :eek:

I think I'll be sticking with my old "bloated" version. Nice write-up.

I scored a used one (non leather) for $400. As a big "interior guy," the Euro dash is the best mod you can do. More legroom for everybody (even people in the rear, since people up front can move forward like 3 inches more if necessary) and the lines flow extremely well with the doors.

I installed it myself and it was a day's job. The worst part was drilling into the sheetmetal on the driver's side.

Very sweet mod, though expensive. Might be interesting to just do the passenger's side or something.

One of the top mods I've done without question!

--Peter
Peter - did you piece together the parts or get a "package"? If the former - how hard was it to source/price?
