    Genius - I'd take one if it fits without any major headaches.

    Have to say that looks much better, I wonder if the plate for the sat nav fitment can be purchased seperately to cover the hole left?

    I guess that's from a left hand drive car and not a bespoke design for a RHD model? If it is from the LHD car then I'm fairly sure the dash sticks out further in the centre of the car than towards the edge. I doubt it would fit without butchering the dash. It would be better if the turbo guage was on the right of the module, but then the menu buttons & wiring would have to be relocated. I think Abarth stuck it on top of the dash for a reason...

    I'll ask at the dealer tomorrow.

    Right hand side of the module would be best, but removing it from the top of the dash is a huge improvement. Even if it went in the boot.

    I prefer it where it is. In the LHD version the wheel is in the way anyway and it ruins the nice round retro look of the main instrument, and it hides part of the colour coded dash, and it's too close to the air vent! Just my opinion, but i like the way it's stuck on top of the dash. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    I like that.  I suppose it wouldn't fit RHD with the dash contour, but would be better I think, notwithstanding DF's comments.
