Which cluster do you guys think....?

Right now I have this ugly grey cluster



but I want to change it to either the stock white ones or the black ones. I have everything else on my car black, so I am thinking the black would blend in. But the white may also look alright.

I have changed all the cluster and dash lights to red, so the cluster will light red too no matter which one I get.

So which one yall think....

black


or white

Lucky for me i have an 03. I love it because it's simple. If you want any, go for the 03. if not i'd stick with the white face.
Best gauge clusters IMO are the IS300s or 01 RSX ones.

Yea the numbers are clear, but they go over your existing gauge face. they are not full replacements, just for looks. The stock gauge light will still go through the numbers of the overlay. Think of it like indiglo gauge that doesn't light up. I have some available for auto trans only (with or without auto strip).

okay i'll have some in a bit. you just gotta put e-tape on the strip and pull out the lights in your cluster from the back so the light doesn't come through for the gear selector.

i dont have instructions yet but you need to remove needles and tape it on. It doesn't look as good as stock but its very close. They're printed on transparent paper so the light should shine through.

no its thin like paper. its transparent paper, with the gauges printed on it, so light will shine through the white numbers. its the same style as stock, thats the idea so it will fit properly. people wanted a black overlay for their clusters that are grey/silver so I made one.
