well the new mini dash was supposedly styled on the old mini centre speedo dash, so you're just going round in circles!

Why you'd want something from those horrid big non mini cars is quite beyond me!

I quite like the look of that, although it would be better if it didnt come so far into the cabin. Hmm I wonder if it would fit within the confines of the dash rails :shy:

Have you got a proto or any designs yet? I might hold off on doing the interior if you've got something like that in the pipeline!
