do not put this on your car! they suck. I was at my cousins house when he did it to his car. he had to pull apart his dash and pull the needles off the gauges and then he went to put it all back together and nothing worked! he had to send out his cluster to somewhere and paid over $300 for his troubles! its not worth it. It now works for him but it def is not worth the frustration.

I remember a guy on cardomain with one of these on a 94 (I think). I talked to him and he said it was an easy install and really enhanced the appearance of the interior. I guess it depends on your electronics/bonneville/general car knowledge. If you have installed a system in your car, I'm guessing the instalation of this kit will be a breeze... but there is always the chance of fking things up .

I normally wont say anything negative about anyone elses car, but he needs to take a step back and rethink some of his priorities.

Rice gauges on a bonneville? :roll: Why would you put Rice burner gauges on a bonneville? Those gauges are ugly. You Could not pay me to drive around with those green and blue glowing vomit streaks on my dash.

Was that carpet (that green/blue stuff inside)?

Hmm, the gages are interesting, however, we were blessed with red sexy backlighting. Only BMWs from the 90'* have red!!

Don't change the red (even if your car is green...LOL)

Believe it or not, the new Acura RSX (Rice) has all red gauges too like a Pontiac.
