Does anybody no if a new gauge cluster would require PATS Programming ? or any additional programming or would it be plug in and play.

Here's what my gauges look like at dusk and at night. This is with the stock bulbs. Note that the lighted numbers are a little fuzzy like they may appear in the photos. That's just the camera. The numbers are clear.
And at night:
If you decide to purchase the gauge dials, I suggest before you remove the OEM gauge dials that you first take some pictures of them: 1) With the car shut off and sitting with the doors closed for at least a minute. Why? I noticed that after you shut the car off the dials after 30 secs or so will sometimes not be at rest position when you first shut off the car. Then the needles on the speedometer and tachometer will drop to the rest position. 2) With the engine running, get the engine up to operating temperature . So you can take a picture of where the needle sits at idle so you get a clear picture of where the RPM's are at.
It can be a bit of a trick to get the gauge needles back to exactly where the original ones were. The gas gauge pointer was always a bit inaccurate right from the factory. Not just my Focus personally, but others have commented the same. For instance, the gas needle might be on the 1/2 mark so you put 6 gallons in (the tank is 12.4 gallons) and then when you start the car, the needle shoots up past the FULL mark and stays there for a bit until you drive 10 miles or so.

As far as stealing, the gauge faces are one of their stock designs. I just had them add the little "Focus" logo which I didn't design in the 1st place. Would've looked better lower or even on the bottom instead of the top, but the headlights on indicator is on the bottom.

I hope you don't mind if I steal this, I love the way the blue faces look. I wish there was more blue lighting.
