    any way to retrofit XTS LCD cluster to ATS ?

    i saw the XTS site Build your own...
    stardart version XTS has same cluster as the ATS.

    so..i wonder are there anyway we can put the XTS LCD Cluster to the ATS....

    i saw the GM service information site..they show up the Chevrolet but no section in there..
    i think Vette C7 or another Lac will come soon..

    It might work. They look like they package into the same space.

    How is it a retrofit when neither are available for sale yet?

    Re: any way to retrofit XTS LCD cluster to ATS ?

    i do not sell anything...
    i just interesting in mod and electronic..

    i think...the most expensive part will the the Cluster...i guess no less than 1000$ because the SRX cluster is around 800$..
    hope it will be plug and play..

    because both car use CUE..same databus..same LAN..

    if anyone mean the Escalade with tapshift from the Hummer H2..i remember less than 50$ from Ebay and only 1 wire to BCM.
    very easy retrofit. it is USA car..Digital not Japanese Analog with a lot of wire..

    That cluster was my favourite thing about the ATS
    or so I thought

    I was wondering why I couldn't see it on the website
    maybe they will have it like in the performance package

    Orr u guys absolutely sure the LCD instrument pannel won't be there ??!!


    If not I guess I would shed a 1000 for the LCD instrument pannel
    That is if it doesn't ruin my warranty

    Lol listen to me like I Already own it

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this retrofit idea works. I love everything about the car...except the cluster! And since it's something I would have to look at every time I drive the car, it would keep me from buying the car. Dang it's ugly!

    You have a point on the XTS - but on the MY13 ATS, every installed full LED cluster will be a retro-fit because it's simply not available as an option.

    At that point, yes. But look at when the OP started this thread...

    Are the instrument cluster shapes even the same? The cars will have different ECM, BCM; retrofitting a cluster from a different car is going to be a nightmare. Assuming it will even work at all.

    I noticed that - but I don't think it matters. Any MY13 ATS with a full LED-cluster is still going to be a "retro-fitted" one, so I guess this didn't change.

    It only leaves the question how you define "retro-fit". I always define this term as something you can or could have gotten from the factory but added later on. So adding something that has never been available might not match that term perfectly.

    Well, here's hoping Cadillac gets their head on straight and offers the LCD cluster on the ATS. The car isn't complete without it imo.
    When you turn your car on, does it return the favour? '14 Cadillac ATS Performance 3.6L AWD in Phantom Grey Metallic and Morello Red Interior -ARRIVED!!
