159 Heater Control panel upgrade?!

Hi - a bit new to this, but wanted to know if it's at all possible to upgrade the 'basic' A/C heater control panel in my 2008 159 SW to a 'climatronic' digital version? I can see from searching pictures that the basic version has two plugs at the back (a white one and a yellow one) and the climatronic has just one (blue).. so I'm guessing it's more than just a straight swap!?
Has anyone tried to do this?

from previous experience with other fiats... would probabaly have to swap out the complete heater matrix. the electrical plugs on the basic model will work completely differently from the climate control version which will more than likely run over CAN.

its not impossible but a LOT of work. ie dash completely out
