While I probably wouldn't do this to my car, I think that it is a very well thought out modification - I like it a lot.
We should make a list of all the things that we could have done better than GM did.
+1 for the list. But, I just use my right hand for the window controls and opening the door. The only issue I have is when driving one of the other cars, I wind up trying to use my right hand and can't reach anything.
I haven't looked at the circuit board in the instrument cluster, but it the DIC is on a daughter board (unlikely), it could in theory be put anywhere as long as its on the CAN bus and has the correct interface circuitry. But, that would be a pretty weird design.
Another option would be to get an Arduino with a CAN shield, a small display and some buttons. Emulating the DIC is pretty straightforward. That's a project I don't really have time for, but maybe someone else could give it a shot.
