I reckon you deserve a nice big lump of cakeybread mate, but looking at the bare dash a most wise decision, hope you don't get any random squeaks when you get it back.

hi all

collected the van this afternoon and it blows nice and cold

i was able to watch  them finishing off the job and they were even cleaning parts as the dash went back together

when i originally went for the quote the guy said that most times when they drill the panel for the switch there is like a transfer over  the plastic where the fan and temperature controls are and it can lift around the switch

and this has happened but it is not really noticeable as it just looks like a slightly lighter band around the switch

total price was £1980 with vat

 the other quotes i had were well around £3500 but then the kit comes with a new panel for the fan temperature controls with the switch in it so i think i did well for just under £2k and the place is not far from me  at hanger lane london and the place is clean  friendly and they take the time to explain things

the company is called alpinair

thinking of cruise control now

I got a Conrad Anderson cruise control kit for my 2003 2.8jtd which was a very easy plug and play setup. Very easily DIY. Cruise control to me is something not to be without once you've had it. I even had it on my Triumph motorbike, sadly missed on the ZZR.

I'd have thought any local auto electrician could order the parts and fit them. I had cruise and remap done at the same time.

It seems a lot depends on how old the van is, when I enquired they told me
I would need a mechanical setup or sumfink cost about £500 but had it done on my
2007 dispatch £120 as it can talk to the on board computer all by itself.
