Not me. The larger font on my 2010 doesn't bother me.

If you want opinions, at least do the leg work for the masses and throw up a pic.

I'd just settle for sharper needles. I had a couple of G6's before my Camaro and loved the speedo/tach on them.

As it stands though using my left arm for nearly all steering it covers the speedo most of the time anyways. Doesn't really see much use.

I definately like the needle better. It looks like you could actually read it. Without my Digital speedometer, I'd be lost!!

I like it better but won't change mine out for it!
I wish the speedometers of today had 10mph increments instead of the 20 that they use today. Just looked more serious looking years ago.

I like it better, but for it to actually be useful it really needs to be bigger. The tach is monsterous and I understand the aesthetic behind having them be the same size, but with a speedometer that small (even using 300ish degrees of it) just isn't going to be able to read very accurately. I feel like there's a lot of wasted real estate there

Depends on the price. I wonder if it would just swap right in; plug and play like.
