    jdm gauge covers

    This may be ricey but i must know...is there a way to keep my tach and gas/temp and just swap a jdm cover over my guaages. i kinda want it to read in km/h...dont ask me why i just do. anything like that that would keep the stock gauge cluster style?

    You can probably keep your existing odometer and transfer it onto a metric cluster, achieving basically the same thing. Frankly, I'd recommend against this though. I find trying to use a metric speedo on US roads, especially those far away from the north or south borders, very difficult. I have no idea what's up with the "miles" and everything, but nobody else understands km and almost all the signs and distances away from border zones are in miles. You'll be very alone out there.

    Yeah, but if you can learn the typical speed limits, and thier metric counterparts, you could be okay. I'd do it. but then again... I'm planning on making my S13 full JDM spec (RHD and all) so maybe that's just my thing

    i was thinking more along the lines of something that just switches the large mph numbers with the small kph numbers. the gauge would act the same, just the background would be different.
