Talking Changing Clusters

G'day all, Yes Im Noob and New to Mini's. I have tried searching here and google but am getting no real answer so I figure best to ask the pros.

I have just picked up my 06 Mini Cooper Hatch S with 6sp man

My centre main cluster is tacho and a small speedo on wheel column

Im wanting to put a dual pair on column from a same year I hope is it possible? Can I also put a speedo or Sat Nav into centre one?

Would I need to have dealer program it if can be done, or would the iCarsoft i910 obd2 I have ordered do it?

I live in remote bush so its a pain doing any of it.

I appreciate any help given and again apologise for being a tool.

Thanks guys

Putting a sat nav in to the centre is a big job as the dvd drive unit is under a seat.

You’d be better trying to fit a chrono centre cluster if you want the twin steering column pod.

Thank you guys, I see the keyword for info is Chrono. Now I have info popping up... I have an aftermarket stereo already fitted but really just don't like the large orange lighted tacho... Maybe if I could change the colours of clusters I could bare it more...

Again thanks.
