Another interior upgrade, cost me roughly RM680 to have it. “Girgio Micro Carbonio” is actually a term for micro carbon effect for 206 RC / GTI180 interior fascia equipment. Upgrade include following items:
- MFD cowling
- Centre fascia
- Both aircond vent
- All interior door lever cover
- Leather binnacle / instrument cluster cover

This will be the final mod which is related to my existing modifications on MFD and COMM2000. To have the rain sensor involves a large sum of cash if I want the outcome as according to factory specification. It requires a different type of windscreen which has all the necessary parts to fit the sensor. Alas, I’m still using my current windscreen because TBH, I was a bit skeptical on the end result. Let’s have some experiments first and I will deal with aesthetical features later on.

Beautiful Saturday morning with nothing else to do, thus I proceed with another project. Seat belt warning or in Peugeot parts documentation, it is called “Front Seat Belt with Alarm”. The idea to activate this feature was struck on my mind when I suddenly came across an online sale of 206 RC / GTI180 front seat belt. It does have an extra wiring which will connect to somewhere. The purchase, I would say, quite rush coz I did not check my ride for the necessary wiring underneath the seat before I pressed the checkout button. Alas, I managed to fix it and it works.

Finally, I managed to display trip reading on the MFD. I chose to modify my existing COMM2000 instead of replacing it with another unit.

In pursuing to upgrade the trim level of my lion, this is the one of three items which I can categorized as the most expensive (even for a used unit). The level of upgrade will start from MFD -> Comm2000 -> Rain Sensor / Windscreen. These upgrades will take a long time to complete as I need to study to make sure these “retro-fitting” works and does not explode my car. A lot of mix and match needed to reach the objective.

Do It Yourself: Yes
Now, since I’m involving too much (very excited, 206 is much simpler than my another car which requires to remove both front doors before removing dashboard) in dismantling glove box as earlier post. Another reason is, my neighbors already started to disperse after having chats with them; politics, cars, banks, investment etc. Emm, why not continue to centre console.
Wow, it almost 11AM at this time. Started at 9:15AM. Can feel the sun burning my skin. Luckily, just sent the car for windows tint yesterday.
