I don't recommend these. I did an install on these recently. They work 'ok' but if your looking at gauges, get SPEEDHUT ones (www.speedhut.com). The fit of the ones in the link you posted is not very good, the instructions are 'generic' so basically they can get pitched in the garbage. Also, the DO NOT change from blue to green, they just change from light green/blue to a brighter green/blue, not distinct colors.

I know TONS about gauge faces, honestly IMO I would go with SPEEDHUT, definitely the best out there by far.....

Also, I have done several gauge installs now, wiring them is a snap, if you do get them, PM me and I can help you with that also.

Yeah, I wouldn't recommend them, I had problems with the install, the needles rubbing, all sorts of issues plus the instructions are completely WRONG. They work no problem but for double the price you can have the SPEEDHUT gauges which are way better and actually do work when you switch colors with the knob.....

mine came from ebay, and they work fine, they aren't the two tone color ones. it's of a little better quality and it was only $37.
