    If your looking to upgrade you Gauge Cluster and HVAC, I would contact MengMotorSports.com and ask for Alan. The Gauge Cluster pulls straight out and to gain access to headunit, pull up on the bottom of the water fall/above the small cubby hole.

    Neither if you are wanting to change out the color of your Combination Gauges and HVAC. These are SMC LEDs which are soldered onto the electronic breadboard.

    Yes, it is very meticulous work. Can be done, but you should have some good experience in soldering techniques. The Combination Gauge can be expensive to replace if you make too much of a mistake. There are several people out there that can perform this for you. You won't be able to drive the car while they have your gauge though.

    If anyone is down here in Texas and would like their gauges done and HVAC replaced. I know someone who does it and will come to you. Worth asking him. If you need his info pls PM me and i will get it to you.

    I asked him about the color changing needles as well and he said he is working on those however still working the bugs out. He can mod the needles as well.
