After some life events I was finally able to get to this. I wired up a harness adapter so you don't have to touch factory wiring and it's completely reversible.
I am getting a TPMS warning and P0630 code, which is apparently a VIN/ECU mismatch, so I have an email in to Phil at BOE to see if we can fix that.
I have to say... I had sort of lost interest in doing this after a while, as the newness of the updated instrument cluster had worn off. Though I think the original white cluster of the S1 as a motorcycle-inspired theme, with Stack logos and all, was awesome, the Elise has lost some of the other motorcycle-inspired elements since then, leaving the white cluster neither here nor there. Now that it's in there, the black cluster feels much more high quality and in line with what the rest of the car has become to me. Plus at night only the numerals and dials are illuminated, so it's a more subtle/sophisticated look. I don't have the car all back together yet so I'll reserve final judgement until then, but switching to this cluster has a bigger visual impact than I thought it might.
I'll keep you posted as I get the OBD codes and TPMS sorted out with Phil.
