Upgrading the spec in my mini

Hi guys!

I bought my lovely mini about 2 years ago now and i normally only keep a car for a few years and then i get another.

I am emigrating from the UK to Australia and i want to take my mini with me due to the fact the car prices over in Oz are so expensive.

I really want a mini with all the bells and whistles however i cant sell my current mini and get a new one as you have to own the car for 2 years before you can import it to oz so basically i am stuck with the spec on my current mini.

So here is the main question!

Can i take out my current AC basic control (just a wheel for hot and cold) and put in the digital AC climate control which will allow me to chose a temp like 20 degree and the car heat to that temp?

Also is it possible to change the steering wheel to one with controls etc?

If it is possible where can i get this done other then mini? And how much am i looking at cost wise?

I know its a bit of an odd question but your help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Like a true newbie I jumped in with a question before doing my forum research.

Used the search button and found similar posts and found the answers.

Haha! Doh!
