    I think you only get the display on the right if you have the trip computer!

    After getting some pods from a breakers (after stressing on the phone that I needed the cable as well), I fitted them on Saturday. Using the excellent guide provided by Ocracoke, it is straight forward enough until the bit where you have to feed the cable between the gauges to connect them together. There isn't enough room to get fingers into the hole to hold the plug while you try and push it into the socket. I ended up removing a small piece of the plastic that is under the dash to give more room.
    A worthwhile couple of hours tinkering

    Its maybe 1 hour job.
    remove the locker out the dashboard.
    Remove the stereo
    remove the plate on top of dashboard.
    Put the cables true the hole , guide them to the place of the removed locker.
    Than run the cables to the speedo / connectors.
    And visa versa

    Far easier (no cutting, no brusied knuckles etc etc; and possibly cheaper too; is to purchase an ELM327 Bluetooth OBDII adapter.
    Preferably get a 'switched' (with on/off provision) version...and also buy a 12" extension lead so that the ELM327 can be positioned
    to the left of the steering column in the tiny trinket tray.
    Then...if you have an Android phone, download Torque (the free version), and set up whatever dials/gauges/displays you want.
    If you have an iPhone, then there is a similar App...Dashboard...but like all things Apple, the App has to be paid for.
