I went ahead and got one. Mike shipped it out fast but I think I may have gotten the last one. I haven't opened to box up yet to see what's in there. I will post some pics when I get around to getting it installed. gotta finish my suspension work first.

Here are some pictures and a short You Tube link of the Carbon Fiber with Blue lighting. Although I really like the new Black Allow look. Can't wait to see some more pictures of it installed.

Mike, I was wondering if you have gotten any more of these gauge sets in. I am definately interested in a set. I tried sending a PM, but the box was full.

For the cluster in the UMI Green Machine (posted above), it looks like a white faced gauge, white needles but when lit up the needles are red, almost makes the gauge faces look darker too. I was originally thinking they were black faced gauges, white lights and red needles. That would be the closest to "stock" looking, if someone wanted that. I think that's what I'd prefer, at least for now. Debating pulling the trigger on a set over before Spring.

* Confirmed with Dakota Digtal that they can be ordered that way, no problem or extra cost (maybe some of you knew that). Black face/white light and red (when lit up) needles. Almost prefer them red all of the time, seems I rarely drive the car at night but still cool. Not a fan of red gauge lights and blue doesn't really fit the car, besides maybe matching the CD player.

I sold the Abbott Cable-x box, you all have talked me into the Dakota gauges, especially since the black face gauges look so close to stock.
