Looks like Dakota Digital has rolled out a new option for our cars. Looks really clean, and with the add-on modules, you can get the center-readout to show some cool stuff. $850 - that's a lot of coin.

Interesting

Interesting. And in all fairness it does say, "Only" $850 hahaha But except for the odo our dashes are not prone to breaking. So the first thing jumped out is while these look neat it would automatically prompt a batch of other dash updates to match case. And hence even "only" more $$$. IDK what the Camaro IP mod runs, but appears attractive and closer fit to oem style.

why?

They do look cool and offer some options but the "only $850" :frown2: part is making me love my Z-Cluster conversion even more. Not sure if this new cluster is PnP either.

The 1 thing that really bothers me is that HUGE LCD Display stuck in the middle like that. Whhhhhyyyy!? I got rid of that when I replaced my Stock Cluster.
IMHHO - They should have made the LCD smaller with just Odie and Trip (no clock) then move it lower and center the speedo and tach together more.

I'm probably getting this for my car. I feel like it's the perfect end cap to compliment the new drivetrain and modernize the interior a bit. It'll also work well with my stand alone harness as I won't have to fuss around with making the factory cluster work.

It is pretty pricey, and 4door, the first thing I thought when I saw it was why don't you get something better than the lame mid 2000's style LCD display in the center for that price. I really figured for 850 they could have added a digital display like on newer cars. The gauge portion of it looks beautiful though.

Again, cost sucks, but if you think about it you are adding an accurate coolant temp gauge and oil pressure gauge, it isn't just piggybacking off the factory senders. That's something I wouldn't do without on a built motor,, and you can pay $100 each for nice gauges, so for me I'm only paying another $650 for the cluster. Still steep, but not as bad when you look at it that way.

I have a quote from a retailer for $765 shipped, so there are some deals to be had. I am seriously considering them myself (black face/white LED) since I don't really like the a-pillar pod, and I'm re-doing the interior anyway...
