Now, I dont recall if his new cluster had more or less miles. Not sure if its something they can only add miles to vs take miles off or vice-versa.

Found a couple on ebay with closer mileage for you:
130k
128k (you'd need to contact them to verify it has tach)

The two most common parts numbers are:
6S4T-10849-BA
6S4T-10849-DA
one should be with tach and other without iirc but ebay sellers arent consistently labeling them the same. I bought a tach cluster with a couple of thousand more miles than my car had and swapped them over when the mileage matched. I did test it as soon as I received to ensure needles and lights worked properly. Very easy to do yourself.



I've heard of some dealers doing it even cheaper, then some won't touch it at all. If you were to take it to a dealer I would say that your old cluster is broken and you need to have the mileage switched over, that way they would be more likely to do it.
