These are high quality gauge faces that I had custom made identical to the OEM from a 2005 Elise. I have a Ferrari Red, Yellow and Black. I am only asking $100 each with free shipping!

I would be all over the black if it had the lotus symbol that is lit up with the rest of the dash... still a little intrigued.. are you actually in Chicago or in the suburbs?

I believe that they are the same until they changed the gauge cluster in 2008. Which is why I am selling these, to buy an 08 cluster and retrofit it.

Interested in the black one. Can I do this one myself or do I need to be like a watchmaker with his tools to remove the dial needles? I have an older BMW and it's almost impossible to remove the needles.

The good news is, once you take the cluster out of the car, it takes 1 minute to pop off the lens and dials.
The bad news is, I already sold the black face, now I have the red and yellow...

Oh well, looks like there's a demand for the black one! You can let me know if you source another one or know when I may be able to get it (via PM, if you prefer).

Actually, I am getting bombarded with PM's for the black face. Looks like I have to place another order for more! I'm not really surprised, it took me a lot of time, money and patience to get them made; you will really think they are OEM.

Anybody can PM me what color they want + PayPal $100 = and in about a month it will be in your mailbox

Do you have a pic of any installed in the car? Same as the '07 exige? Min has a slightly different icon second from the right on the bottom. Can icons be changed to fit?

My car has no interior right now, but I will try to connect the cluster tonight so I can take a picture.
This should fit the Elise and Exige before the new black cluster was introduced in 2008.

Ditto on the awesomeness. Why didn't somebody think of this before for the '05s?

I am certainly in for a black faceplate.

Does the speedo say "MPH" or KMH? I can't tell. I'd definitely prefer MPH. Is that possible on this next run?

I like the lack of Lotus emblem. Cleaner / "less is more" as far as I'm concerned.

THANKS! :bow:

PayPal email address?

Also, can you post a pic of what this looks like at night / illuminated?

I forgot to mention that they can make it in almost any color you want, as long as the numbers are white, because that is where the light comes through.

No love for the red or yellow? My plan was to switch the gauge faces almost monthly because it is so easy to do; but I get bored easily too ;-)

Yeah, it's definitely labeled km/h, but the scale goes to 160, which is the mph scale (160 kmh = 99.4 mph). Does not compute.

I'd probably take a black one if you do another run and fix the label.
