I dont really know if this belongs here but could someone move it if i am in the wrong section?

My car is an 06 ZX3 SE.

My 1st question: do you guys know if i am able to take out my gauge cluster and replace it with one that has a tach because i currently dont have a tach, would my ODO reset at 0 or would i be able to reprogram it to the correct mileage?
2nd Question: what all is involved in the HID conversion for the 06 focus? Has anyone done angel eyes? hard to wire?
Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know if it is possible to reprogram gauge clusters? For instance, i have 49,000 miles on my car and i dont have a tach with my current cluster. If i find a cluster in the junk yard or ebay with more miles like 100k maybe. Is it possible for the information to be transfered?

iirc, a dealership might be able to re-program the cluster, just make sure you find a cluster for you year, since the plugs have changed.

I have heard the answer is yes, although the price they charge may be more than its worth. You would have to call and find out...it might be something where they can easily increase the mileage but not decrease it or vise-versa.

05-07 should be the same, i can verify that an 06 was a direct fit in my 07. real easy to swap too, less than 20 minutes start to finish for me. i found one with about 3k more miles than my car had. When i first got it, i plugged it in to make sure everything worked and verify the mileage on it. then just sat on it for several months until my mileage matched. I actually was on the road when the mileage was about to match up and swapped it on a side street in about 10 minutes or so [;)]

I have a connection in ford service but i havent gotten around to asking him. I figured you guys may know for sure. I called him and he said that if i am for sure it will fit, he would reprogram is possible... no charge. Thanks for a time frame/estimated replacement time. YeHaaaa for 100th Post!!!
