dash removal was drivers panel first, then just pop the glove box out and remove the three screws that hold the centre console to the glove compartment. then i just started taking the console apart, starting with the two bolts in the bottom of the armrest, then popping off the panel surrounding the gearstick. after that its pretty easy to get the rest off.
i got the M2-ATX from theonlykid1 on Ebay... amazingly fast delivery... he's in the US and it arrived here is AUS 4 days after i ordered it!!!
