1 from ford for like 400 bucks plus pay to have it programed to your car so the miles and options match

2 get one off a wrecked focus and still have to pay around 100+ bucks to get it then have it still take it to ford and have it programed to your car. or not program it at all and have the miles not match your OEM cluster and not match your DMV recored. so now u have an 06 with 60,000 miles after 3 months so your car is worth nothing now. plus all the lights in the cluster will be on unless u put black tape over the lights that go to options that u dont have IE traction control and stuff like that

You forgot about #3 contacting Mike (b16sir1991) and having him pick you one up for $65 and come to find out he had a ST gauge cluster. Perfectly plug and play. I ended up going from my odo reading 36K to 6K. You can find them believe me! If you really wanted to you should be able to go to your local ford dealer and have them program it shouldnt cost much but you might be without the car for a day.
