WTB 1997-1999 Silver faced guage cluster or can I use clusters from 2000 on up models

I have a 1999 boxster and want to change my traditional black guages to the silver looking ones that some of the 97-99 cars come with. Does anyone have this?

Or can I use a cluster from the 2000 on up model?

I have a 99 986 that has a Techart upgraded silver gauge set (says Techart on it). Nice ambiant hue to it at night when lit up (reverses out)...numbers are orange at night, black by day. I am swapping it out for a Gemballa set. Mileage is at around 64000, but I think PORSCHE can reset for your actual miles. All lights work, no bad pixels. Would like around $350 shipped. For a 5 speed car, not Tip. Make an offer. Dan

The dealer can't reprogram clusters to a different mileage (new clusters can be programmed though). However, Palo Alto Speedometer in CA will do it for a fee.

$300 is not bad for a working cluster with Techart silver faces. Gauge faces alone cost $199 to $399.

I sure do like my techart silver gauge faces!

Oh yeah... I do not think you can use clusters from 2000 cars or newer. They use the MOST fiber optic system. 97-99 clusters are compatible though.
