If you are lucky enough to have a car without a sunroof, I think the LCD box can be mounted in the panel between the sunvisors, tilted down about 45 degrees to be viewable. I just need to find a spare panel to cut up.

A bit of headlining cloth and glue should finish it off nicely.
The hole was cut freehand using a Dremel cut-off disc.

Note that this is for Xantia Mk1, on a Mk2 (without the IR receiver) there should be more room to mount the display further in.

Well... I dodnt update this with the connections which I thought I had...

Most of the connections were taken from inside the car... I think there was only one that went to the ECU, which was injector info output...

The connections I picked up from THIS POST

Ive still not done the Cruise yet, I need to try and source a W, X or Y reg ECU and Body computer ... In honesty theres far more important stuff needing attention in my life at the moment..
