How do you like your metra kit? Do you still have all the steering wheel/bluetooth functions?

its a pain in the ass to do for 2010 because of the door locks and some other things... just get a metra and find a radio you are happy with

Yeah, I read on another thread that the locking was gonna be a problem. You think it will be that big of a pain in the ass? I might be a little too ambitious about it with my car

I think that's awesomely reasonable for price. I hope it works out for you...and good luck with the other issues.

Thanks for posting your experience with the dash swap. It looks great! Any ideas on where to obtain one (besides ordering from a dealer)?

I'm thinking of doing the same thing to an '11 convertible, but also changing the door lock controls to the '12 style (each door + center) and changing the center rearview mirror to the '12 mirror/camera setup at the same time. Ofer mentioned the lock controls might be a problem with the '10 in his Mylink thread. I'm hoping not so much with the '11.

I'm going to wait on this dash/door mod until the Ofer's Mylink radio change info is finalized as I'll change the antenna cable at the same time. I may not ever change to the MyLink radio, but I only want to take the dash/doors apart like this once.

Can anyone chime in with the part numbers necessary to convert a 2010 to a 2012+ dash with HUD? I saw in an earlier post that the OP gave the part number for the suede insert. Just want to know if that's the only part number needed or if it's multiple part numbers that are required.

It looks like the Dash would be part #42 in the diagram at this link. What do you think ?

I looked at this site, and couldn't find any information about the dash...but I am probably being dumb. Do you know what I need to search to find the dash's that are for sale?

I need the grille that covers the center speaker in the 2010-11 dash, if you want to sell it from your old one.

If your going to pull the dash, you may just want to go ahead and do the HUD.

It would be nice if we had detailed DIY on this. I definately want to do this mod but I'm a little weary of taking my dash apart. I wouldn't know where to begin.

Does the part on the tonkin site include the bezel for the ac vents? I think it may be a separate part that costs another $163.75 (see part 003)

Can you order a 2012 Dash from GM? I have been having a hard time finding one, most parts suppliers don't have them, and then I was close to getting one from a junk yard but decided it was in too bad of shape. So does anyone know where I could get one? I'd really appreciate it!

Yeah same here, I am for sure gonna do this at some point in the near future, but I am definitely a little weary, I know it can be done, just not how it can be done.

Yeah, I got in contact with the spaldings link you posted, and the best one they had was in pretty rough shape. I debated on getting it, but I was too worried I wouldn't be able to fix it up.
