It is a small information display. Time, temp, L/kms etc.

Auto climate control. It is very extensive conversion and can be done. The ENTIRE HVAC has to be replaced, ductwork, controlers, modules, etc. You can bet on $2000 in parts., You best bet is to buy a wrecked car with it in it and use all the parts.

RHD, seriously? People still believe this?

Only British Commonwealth nations use RHD, no one else. That means all of Europe is LHD just like in the US, only the Bitish Isles and commonwealths are RHD in Europe.

British Commonwealts-current and previous, not all but some. United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland, Hong Kong, Japan, Jamaca, South Africa, India, several Carribian Islands, Australia, some islands in the South Pacific and a few more.

That's the Ghia trip computer that was in the Ghia model and maybe some others. I didn't see any of those overlays on ebay UK, use combinations of terms like Focus MK1 dials / plasma dials / gauges / overlays and maybe one will pop up with MPH one day... or get the KPH and move to Canada.

incubus625 This is a european car, its next to impossible to swap in a digital hvac controls. Members who wanted to add it afterwards had a very difficult time doing so. Also look at the key.

jinstall If you get one from the UK, it will have both.
