    Hi,
    I'm new to the forum and I would like to start of with a question. If anybody could answer it would be great...

    I have a W203 03plate with the ugly orange display (Speedo, system, air con etc). I much prefer the display in the newer 05 onwards model.

    Would it be possible to upgrade? And would it be as simple as just plugging in. I know I would have to correct the millage etc.

    Cheers

    Tim

    Hello and welcome. No direct answer from me but is could have been done but not cheap to do.

    Lets hope a definite answer comes in :D

    Thanks, I imagine it will cost approx £300 if I can get the Speedo and air con dials from salvage yards etc, I'm thinking of putting a top spec double did sat nav/tv in aswel. I'm not a fan of the orange! If I can't do this could I change the bulbs to change the colour?

    No reason why not, quite easy to do once you remove the Dash Panel, I changed mine on my E320cdi and it does make a difference.
    Best wishes

    Any chance of a picture, not sure what you mean. Mines an 04 and every things white ???
    You could always try breakers for the parts, but not sure if you can swap dials etc ?
