No you dont, it is a straight swap, I put a XF Fairmont dash into my old XF station wagon and it worked without a hassle, trip computer everything, it wasnt hard swapping them over either, just have to make sure you have all the looms connected. Didnt even have to chage any sensors either.
Give it a go it was a fun project, and the end result was fantastic.
