do u have to mod the 5 atall or chop the dash? and do all the switches match up (with a bit of chopping)

iss it a pretty straight forward swap for everything, or have u realy gotta be good with the fiberglass??

thanks  :D

You have to use a Clio steering column and make that fit the 5, the top section of dash needs trimming back abit and the top of the heater box needs tring too.
No the have to change 3 plugs on the 5 loom to Clio plugs so some of the switchs will connect up, thankfully most plugs from Clio to 5 are interchangable.

No fibreglass needed when fitting it mate
