Do you have a connection for a euro cluster? My cluster is less than desirable and I would do a trade + cash.

PS. The only real problem with my cluster is the glass has a crack.

PPS. ~141K

No, sorry. I tried to be the go to guy for this stuff years ago and not one single person followed through. I only had 1 or 2 replies. There's no business in clusters or me stocking/fixing them.

I might have two for sale, but straight sale only and you probably won't like my price.

I know I would probably mess my car up so I will leave this alone...
Great write up
