I too have been looking at swapping in the lcd cluster. I have a 16 Performance. I have visited a few dealers and all of them said no, it can't be done. The only option i see right now is buying the cluster and having it programmed by a 3rd party. I think some ebay sellers can do cluster reprogramming but there is a possibility this will void the warranty (not exactly sure how the dealer would know the cluster has been replaced though without thoroughly investigating).Sorry to dig up a new thread but i went to the dealer and they are stuck on stupid! Dont know anythig let alone to flash a new cluster. Anything to do with customizing the car after the sale is taboo. But i want to change the cluster to the lcd any updates as to what the dealership has to do specifically?
Cool. Since you have already decided to take the plunge, let me offer a few more suggestions to increase your chance of success. I think you'll have more luck if this is approached a bit more methodically (engineer by trade).Thanks. I do want to see whats all involved to do the swap. Ill just bite the bullet and see what happens. Worst case i just swap the needles back in
Have you looked at the thread where nyinstaller did the same for the ATS? http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-ats-general-discussion-forum/562442-xts-cluster-swap-man-took-long.htmlI'm currently waiting for the cluster from GM for my 14 CTS 2.0T luxury using the Full LCD Display. I want to keep it original to the year but no one has made heads or tails whether an high-def LCD cluster that came out in 16 would fit and be programmable for 14-15. Please let me know because I can always reorder another cluster. Thank you.
