Shure you can, if you are not able to operate it will not work.

Mfa on the stalk is completely independent and has its own plug. As Joost said if that plug is not connected then all that happens is the button doesn’t work

As long as the sensors are still in place, outside temperature and oil temperature are still useful to have even if the MPG and miles etc don't work?

true but I'm anxious enough person as it is without another gauge telling me the engines about to explode :hugegrin:
i wanted to use the MFA on the green car eventually so will need to swap stuff about.
crusty has the ABF so unless i wire it in correctly the MFA probably won't work anyway so rather not have it in there.
