Auxiliary Gauge Cluster

I have a 2012 Camaro 1SS. I would like to put in the 4 auxiliary gauge cluster located near the shifter. The GM website does not offer one. However, I did find other websites that do (part number 92247188). Some websites state that it fits the 2010 - 2011 and some state it fits 2010 -2012. Has anyone placed one of these gauge clusters in there 2012 Camaro 1SS and if so was it easy?

phastekperformance has them. They get them from gmpartsdirect.com http://www.phastekperformance.com/GM...s-92247189.htm I got them from phastekperfomance because they had free shipping. gmpartsdirect were cheaper but shipping made them more expensive than phastekperformance. Here are the part #'s for the gauges:

Automatic V6 or V8 - 92247189
Manual V6 - 92247187
Manual V8 - 92247188

I swear I read on another thread that there was no harness in the 2012 for it to plug into but I might be mistaken.

I have a 2012 1LT and it was all plug-n-play. Easy mod to do and well worth it.

It's $319 shipped from gmpartshouse.com; here is the thread:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=125029

Here are two more threads on the install:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=151439

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=160339

I just installed it last month, and although it is plug and play, the install was a bit hairy, but prob because I'm not that technical. I had a hard time getting the 12 volt (cig lighter) out but if you follow the instructions and take your time, you'll be fine. Took me almost an hour but it looks great, the product is solid, and the vendor was great to work with.

I have a 2ss with the gauge cluster by the console. The GM marketing department must have slipped this one by when the GM lawyers had a day off. It's horible place for gauges. You have to take your eyes completely off the road to look at them. So think about it, when do you look at your gauges? When your just crusing or when your really putting your foot into it?

Anyway, the cool factor is great but they are not that functional, even less functional if you have an after market stereo kit that obstructs the view.

Pretty sure the location is a throw back to the 1 gen Either way I added them to my 1SS for the factor

In my opinion there are better ways to spend money on your car
for 300$ you can go the following:
- Get a 7" tablet (~220$ - Google Nexus)
- Tablet car holder - 20$
- OBD2 reader - 20$
- Google SW - 10$ (Gauge Cluster)
So for ~270$ you have a table in the car with all you can use and a great Gauge Cluster + GPS + Music + Whatever you like from a tablet

I'm not sure how to attached an Image but PM me if you like a picture of my Sonata with it
