Espace 2.0 petrol Faulty dash display

Hi, just thought I'd pass on my experiences re faulty Espace dashboard. I had exactly the same problem on my 2 ltr manual petrol (2000 model).
After being quoted between £300 - £650 for repair / replacement dash I bought one off a scrapper ( eBay ), and fitted it easily in about 20 mins! I paid £60 for it, and saw it working on the donor car before I bought it.
The only consideration to make is the recorded mileage, the one I bought had 30,000 less miles than the faulty one on my Espace, and showed this lower mileage when I fitted it.
Worried about the legality of this I 'phoned both DVLA & VOSA, both of whom said it is not a concern to them..just up to me whether I inform any potential buyer if I decide to sell in the future.
Hope this helps, Cheers, Brian.
