I have a Citroën C4 2005 Petrol. My central dashboard currently looks like this: Citroën C4 2005 Dashboard

I figured I can buy the following panel from eBay and easily fit a Nexus 7 Tablet inside it, potentially even write an app to get data from OBD2, and even fit the screen inside the glove compartment.

Here is the eBay listing

My idea is to have the tablet as radio, sat-nav, media player, diagnostics etc.

I'm just not entire sure if the panel from eBay would fit my car as it is for a slightly different model C4 even though they look quite alike.

    I'm glad your question is a "fit" question and not a "purchase help" question ... it should be on topic this way. I'm not sure if anyone is going to be able to answer such a specific question, but if they can, I have one similar I want to do with my wife's car. Crossing fingers for a good answer!

  • @Paulster2 I'm 95% certain it will fit no problem. Just by looking at them both, one can tell they do look very much the same. But unfortunately my service turned out a bit pricier that i fancied, thus I can't spare even 30$ to try it out. Dec 14 '15 at 15:13
  • You need to measure everything out. Can't be answered without the data. Dec 23 '15 at 5:39

There is no way for me to tell if the attachment system from the back is compatible, but the eBay listing has a very useful image for you shown below.

What you need to do is verify with a ruler or measuring tape that the dimensions between the hazard lights button and corresponding button on the left has a center-to-center length of 240 mm and end-to-end length of 265 mm.
