they get a bad name from chavs who think that all you need is a bleed valve and your away.. then sell em when the blow head gaskets due to misuse.

i did the 'clio dash' last year, took me a week of graft, and wasn't fun...

when i did mine i had to use the clio column (the pic above still has std one) so had to be welded to bulkhead etc, but it means i got proper stalks and ignition in correct place, also mean that buy using a complete clio lockset i no have a working 'plip in key' key rather than a seperate fob

heater controls were a pig to get working correctly, as they work oppositly to the 5, so had to make new ones up from scratch. the 5 dial cluster does fit however with the clips from the clio one attatched in the correct places

i dont have many pics i'm afraid, but here are the camphone ones of when i was doing it:

fitting in a non 16v dash so i could cut it about to my hearts content:

then its time for the 16v dash, using the 1.2 one as a template:
