    Hi guys,

    Ive got an E36 with the classic heater dials... can this be changed to the newer button style?

    Sorry i this question has been asked before, I searched and found nothing!

    Thanks,
    EmZ

    Hmm.
    What model do you mean the button style is on?
    is it late E36 or E46?

    Hi boostist, thanks for the reply, late e36 me thinks... in other words... swap the ugly dials for the climate control unit?

    Ive seen some on the 'N' reg's before but my one doesn't have it. (mine is n reg too)

    In a word, yes, if you want to remove your whole dash, and install the heater blower unit e.t.c and fit the wiring loom and module

    In my opinion, if you don't have aircon already then you may be worth spending your money on something else... don't forget............................................ .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .....
