I doubt dealer would fix this and would just tell me I need a new cluster. I could probably bring to an electronics shop to fix but what the fuck, I'll give it a shot. Nothing ventured nothing gained, except for buying new cluster

    I'm not Asian, but maybe a new R8V10 Plus. They just released prices for U.S, better than I thought. V10 Plus $189,900, comes very loaded with lots of CF and ceramic brakes, only a couple other things I would add so price would be under $200k, that is a huge savings over a loaded Huracan that would be close to $300k with same amount of cf. Anyone want to buy R8? You get Supercharger for free

    That supercharger cost more than the MSRP of any car I've owned.

    Do want. Can't have - unless you really want to get generous on my trade-in or very creative with the financing.

    Gotta enjoy that supercharger for at least a year. New R8 is still like the same as your car with fancier displays but no stick and 200 fewer hp. I'd be in no rush to make that switch.

    After 5 hrs of surgery the patient is doing well. Gas gauge and coolant temp gauge which also wasnt working are both working fine. I'm pretty surprised I was able to accomplish this. I experimented first on the used cluster, besides having to separate cluster I had to remove p.c board from behind where gauges are. Then disassemble the 2 little motors and realign gears to shaft that had pushed out. Then put back together. Was pretty surprised when I got it all mounted back in car and turned key everything worked

    That's awesome. It's pretty great that you are willing to do your own work on that car. I would expect most R8 owners to just have something like this done for them without even attempting it first.

    More gauges now, put on P3 vent gauge shows Coolant Temp, Intake Air Temp, Exhaust Gas Temp, Throttle Plate, Speed, RPM with Shift-light, Battery voltage. Also has 0-60 reading, You just go to that and "Ready" comes up, then when car starts moving it starts counting and stops when you hit 60

    That's pretty awesome. Looks OEM.

    Thanks, I could have bought just the display and modify my vent to put it in but I didnt want to screw around figuring I would break something. So I ordered it with it already installed in a stock OEM vent

    really nice. I am surprised how much vent you still have left, which is a good thing, IMO. I have seen similar pods in various cars and they cover almost all, or the entire vent, which to me detracts from the oem look. That one looks perfect.
