I can't tell what year your car is but the 91 - 96 cars had analog gauges for everything except the speedometer. You could also get a digital readout for oil temp, coolant temp and volts.

If you have the "starwars" (84-89) dash you would probably have to change the whole thing to go to analog gauges. Not worth the trouble in my opinion. If you want analog that badly get a newer car.

These knuckleheads throw "get a new(er) car around like everybody's got the time, money or desire to do that:rolleyes:

To answer your question, yes, you can get a later model C4 dash and it'll fit. May have to do some minor mods, but it's already been done. If you can't find it here with a search, then check over at Brand X (CF) and do thier search.

You can also use aftermarket analog guages and make you own panel. I've seen some that look great andothers that are :down:

Just get what you want in mind first, take a little time and see what you come up with.

Cost? Depends on how radical you go and where you get parts?

Much cheaper than a "newer" car. Especially if you're fond of the one you have;)

PS: There's also the C5West C5 dash kit and I've seen a couple of C5 dashes in C4's. Check with KPForce on here or at CF. He did one I believe?
