    I have been playing with the idea of somehow fitting an OBC and a Digital Heater Fascia...

    Here are the ones in question:

    OBC:


    Digital Heater Fascia:


    Am I right in thinking this would definitely be a retro-fit situation?

    If so, what exactly would I need for it to work in my e36?

    Also, the heater fascia - it looks like dual heat control, would that have any issues if I were to fit it?

    Kthxforthat.

    I hadn't already searched the forum.
    I hadn't realised that there was no clear answer.
    That's not why I opened this thread either, it was to be a complete tool.

    There are clear similar answers for both.

    OBC - Yes, you can retrofit but difficulty depends on where you start from. Clock=hardest, 7 button=easier, 11 button=easiest

    Climate - Yes, you can retrofit but difficulty depends on where you start from. No air-con=hardest, non-climate air-con=easier, that said there is a lot of work regardless

    That shows a conversion from 11-button to 18-button. I don't have any OBC...

    It'll be difficult but its got a wiring diagram so shows you what wires you need for you to be able to connect the 18 button OBC.If you're no good at electrics then I wouldn't attempt it.It'll involve a lot of retrofitting and AFAIK you may need to install a sensor or 2 for all the functions to work.

    External temp. sensors and the like. I'm not great with electrics, but all the fun is in the learning!

    I've bookmarked the guide, as it's just an idea for now.

    What about the digital temperature/climate control?

    There's not a lot of information on it..
