The single dial in the shape of a MINI badge is for Auto/climate control air con, the 3 rotary knob type is for Manual air con.
They are not interchangeable (without a lot of work and replacement of parts) as auto air con is a completely different heater /air con unit behind the dash with flaps and vents controlled by temp sensors and servo motors. Auto air con can be retrofitted, (a couple of Mini2 members have done it)................I have seen the BMW pdf on how to fit the system but is a 2 day + job with lots of wiring mods.

thanks for the post back mate, sounds like too much of a mission to be honest! i have got a mini style front spare here so thought it was possible to fit it straight on but that makes sense now with them being different!

thanks
