Radio and Gauges

OK, this is probably a noob question but here goes:

If I want to switch my radio and factory gauges (the ones below the radio where the little cubbyhole thing is) around, is this possible without modifying stuff?? It's now really a big deal i just think it would look better

If your 03 came with the factory gauge pack, then it's a simple plug'n'play swap. I did it in my MR:

Did the exact same thing with mine 3 weeks ago....came out just like the pic above. Still getting used to looking 'up' to see the boost.

Yeah, switching the boost gauge to the left while switching the radio is a great idea.

If you have the gauges from the factory, you do not need the relocation kit, all the parts you need are already there. Very strait forward swap, just be sure not to bind up the HVAC controls when you are moving stuff around.

Part number is correct.... but do you already have the gauges installed?

$45 is a great price, My cost at work is $43. How much is shipping? I got mine for $22 when Mitsu was running a special.
