as you guys know, i had a cluster swap done, and i'm satisfied with it as everything works great. i was on the kia website going through accessories that are offered for the rio, when i realized that "hey, the rio's have a very nice cluster design"

it looks to me like a direct swap, and it should be without a question.

now take a look at these two clusters that are available on the kia rios and tell me what you think. i'm actually liking their design more, especially the first pic.





new clusters are now available for our cars :banana: good luck finding them for a good price though, lol. apparently a rio cluster is around $150 in a junk yard where as you can get an accent cluster for half that price. wierd.

kia, the power to surprise LOL :thumbsup:

 If they haven't thrown a wrench in the works by altering the position of the indicator lights, I bet you could just buy the whole cluster and swap cluster faces (of course that also depends on which cluster you've got. lol)  That would save you all the grief of the odometer reading issues you get when doing a flat out swap of the cluster... 

I kinda like the top one...  But the bottom one looks cool with the red LCD. (does the Rio's cluster have red backlighting now?)

Top one is nice.

Not having a temperature gauge is just not right.

apparently so, even a new steering wheel design, me like alot



BTW, some small search around my area revealed that for some reason only 2006 Kia rio clusters are available, which do not look nice like the 2 above. Very plain looking and not worth it, it would be a challange to find a 2008 cluster.

Sex in front of your eyes...lol
I never have low oil pressure or have to check my engine during sex, Hazard lights is another story :cigareta:

The pics don't do it justice, that blue is amazing in real life.

I truely just had a gimmegasm seeing the blue! I want that in mine so bad. (mine's green) But I'm too scared to even attempt taking it apart to do an led swap....... Is it hard to do?

By the way: I agree with JVACC09. Not having a temperature guage is messed up. Glad I have one. :D

i never thought about this, its actually not a bad idea, what was the failure about? why didn't it work?
Im not quite sure, i believe its the polarity...when i decide to change the color it was late night i had to close everything again and i thought it would work w/o testing it...well the results are obvious :p

btw, nice sig :)
