A/C upgrade

Hi Guys,
Just a quick question, my 06' 147 JTD currently has manual controls for the a/c system, by whichI mean it does not have the digital displays where the temp can be dialed in.

Is it possible for me to simply repalce this control unit with the dual climate zone model, as a simple plug and play upgrade?

Any advice would be much appreciated

Kind Regards

Nope, you're not the first to think of doing that.....
It would involve modifying most of the flaps in the ventilation system, as the flaps are controlled by stepper motors in the climate control version. Also you're missing all the temperature senders in the ventilation system, sunlight detector and CAN bus integration etc.. In short, it's not worth it .....
