Can be special ordered from your local TRD Sales Dept (Toyota Parts Dept at the Dealership)

They run for about $550 (not including import taxes)

and are only available in KMH rather than MPH... since they are imported from Australia/Japan...

would that roll back the odometer to 0 miles?

I'd hate to buy that and get stuck with odometer fraud.

yes - your odometer would be set back to 0... since you are replacing your entire gauge cluster and not just overlaying a sheet

BTW - Fraud would be if you intentionally changed your odometer mileage and represented your car when selling it as having different than actual mileage.

if you were to replace your gauge cluster with a new cluster and noted to the new buyer of the additional miles that the new cluster had not recorded - you should be just fine.

Yeah, when you go to the DMV on the form to transfer title it says "odometer reading" then there's a box where you can indicate whether it is ACTUAL mileage or if it has been altered.

Although, I could just keep the stock gauge cluster and replace it when I am done using the new one, and then report the mileage.

Tach doesnt change position with the overlays... the only way to put the tach in the center (where it should have been in the first place for manuals), is to replace with TRD cluster or do something custom

just get the autotechnic s7 gauges..look real nice and costs a lot less. plus its in mph, etc etc etc. 500+ dollars to put your rpms in the middle and throw you off by changing to kilometers/hr? i dont think so. if you want your RPMS to be more visible get a tachometer and/or shift light.
