: RS Gauge Cluster!
05-24-2005, 03:01 PM
I found an RS gauge cluster, and i was wondering if it would be plug and play compatible to the US focus? I understand that the speedometer reads higher, but am i correct when i assume that it can be fixed by the same way if you were to replace the gauges, ie speedhut, in a US cluster? I did try and use the search, but unfortunatly you can't search for words less than 3 letters.

the RS is RHD, isn't it? The guage won't fit right in a north american car, I wouldn't think...

I'm pretty sure there are LHD RSs as well.

They made both lhd and rhd. Not sure about the same pinout's on the wiring though.

That's true, I'd say buy it, try it out and let us know. Hopefully it works out.....I might wanna look for one myself.

I asked the guy yesterday that has the cluster, to take some pictures of the backside, but he has yet to respond. I'm a little hesitant on buying it and it not working correctly as it's around $100. Whats even better is the readout is in MPH, not KMH.
edit: the guy that has the cluster also got some complete set of RS seats, front and back. He's asking $525 w/o shipping. Would this be a good price?

Those are pretty good prices for the seats, and the cluster (a regular factory cluster costs about $300-400).

Randy, just sent you a PM.

Did you get any pictures of the frontside? I wouldn't have thought that the FRS guage would have come in MPH, only in metric units.

Still waiting for a picture of the backside...

That's cool. Thanks.

darnit thats a good price for the seats, I would be all over those if I had the cash. I would love to get the RS Interior in my 05 focus.

Yeah that's a real good price for either of the parts. I mean regular ole SVT seats go from $400 up, and the RS seats are uber-rare. But shipping charges would probably be monstrous, from overseas?

Yeah, thats really why I don't have the cash, shipping from overseas. I just can't believe someone would want to rip those seats out.
Hell I wish Sparco offered something similar. None of their seats look like those RS seats.

Unfortunatly my settlement check is running behind so im not going to be able to get these seats in time. Shipping will be expensive, as he quoted me around $30 to ship the gauge cluster w/insurance, to my home state. I could only imagine what the seats would be, but im sure your still getting a good deal. I was unaware that he put them on ebay, but he did, and now there going for over $760..without shipping. The ebay listing says no shipping, but email him and ask him..he was nice enough to do it with the cluster as for the cluster it said that he would only ship to the UK. Ebay item #4552194053.
