Used avionics and steam gauges like the ones in this Cessna Cardinal panel might be a good option for a budget upgrade.
Still, the Garmin GMA340 audio panel, GNS430W, SL30 navcomm and GTX330ES ADS-B in that stack could run close to ,000. The typical basic ground-up IFR avionics upgrade is going to approach, if not exceed, ,000 (in 2015 dollars).
This won’t buy an autopilot or primary flight display, so you’re stuck with steam gauges unless you can spend around ,000.
Sadly, we’ve witnessed enough buyer remorse over the years when owners upgrade entry-level aircraft for IFR on the cheap.
