Looked on their website and the footwell LED's are 65 euros plus shipping so not a cheap option for sure.
It was around £40+ when it all came through, they send you an extra set of bulbs in case its faulty rather than trying to send them back to the states. Not sure if you could just use another IR remote (ie the ones that control lights) if thats the case then If I find it I could sell the other set. Its the only LED lights that I could find that are don't bring up codes and change colours to match ambient lights

Wait a sec, so the screen size is actually the same? Only buttons are flat, right?

Would you mind to tell how much did you pay for that upgrade and where can I get that screen?

yes this is only upgrading the old style 8" display to 8" newer style. as mine is 66reg (first production)

apparently the screen is only A SCREEN, the graphic and setting is all based on the unit in the glove box, therefore, nothing has changed from my original setting. the only change is the more modern/ up to date look compare to the newer production

I paid £220 for the screen as I verge on a brand new one without mark, however it you can have it as cheap as £150 etc.
the trim is off a 2019 R-line and I am luckily hold on to one with perfect condition for as less as £35
both item are from ebay, there is lots of screens, but Decent trim might have to wait for the correct timing.

Part number for the screen 5G6919605B (for satnav) or 5G6919605A(without satnav), obviously depends on you car if it already have sat nav
Tirm part number 5NN858069B

I didn’t realise until I collected my car but the car I test drove had the old unit but mine came with the updated touch control, I guess I got lucky on that one

Hi thank you all for the information on the 8" glass screen I have a 2016 model but it had the 8" standard screen and I have upgraded the screen today.
I could not fit it due to my injuries to my hands but I got a ex-halfords fitter to do the work for me.

After I showed him this post a videos on YouTube he removed the old screen and fitted the new on in 20 mins.
it is much more clearer and my app button works as it should, the standard screen had a traffic button but mine works as it should.

also does any body have any reconditions on a glass screen protector as it is already full of finger prints.

cheers

I just keep a microfibre cloth in the door pocket. Deals with all sorts on the dash too when I'm sat in traffic and notice a smudge or speck.
