4 pack gauges ?

Are the four pack gauges a (2) LT/SS only feature? Or will they be available as a separate option?

Just wondering because I'm going to either be getting a 2LT priced around 26k or a 1SS priced around 28k.... But I really want the 4 pack gauges if I end up getting the 1SS.

If anyone knows that answer to this question I'd really appreciate it.

There is another thread on this however the four pack gauge cluster will be availble from the dealer for all models. It is only availble from the factory in the 2LT and 2SS.

IDK...

1SS with 4pack, and ABL? That may do it for me. Should be relatively easy to add-on.

I wonder what else is involved with adding the gauges.
I mean ... is the wiring already under the console so you just plug it in? or do you have to run the harness through the car and add the sensors? (in which case, I'm sure it can get expensive quickly)

That would be nice but, I think I'd rather have the 1ss with C and C package and BA sound system.

That extra 3 grand could be Pedders suspension, custom wheels, paint, half a supercharger...

To 2SS or not to 2SS...

My question is, will the oil pressure, oil temp and water temp all be displayed on the screen between the speedo an tach?

If so, I have minimal need for the four pack besides being able to view all of them at the same time...

+1 on the $3k going to upgrades!

as for SS or not, are you gonna start asking what color to get as well?

It looks like the 4 pack can be added. My question is the steering wheel controls, and the bluetooth connectivity, can that be dealer added? If that is the case I will stick with the 1SS. As much as I want the heated seats, I like the idea of getting suspension upgrades vs. heated seats.

NO - bluetooth cannot be added.

If it's true and the 4-pack guages can be added as an accessory to the 1SS I'll be very happy. It'll be a 1SS with BA and 4-pack for me!

QUESTION:

I've seen two versions of the "4 Pack". Is this due to one being manual trans and the other being automatic? Will there in fact be two different "4 Packs" available if this is the case? And again, does anyone know if the wiring & sensors will be inplace under the console for easy install after the fact or will that be a necessary part of the install and will we need sensors?

Thanks!

So does anyone know what metrics will be available on the Driver Information Center? (The little LCD screen between the Tach and Speedo)...

I know that, going all the way back to the second style of the C4 corvettes and the C5 and C6 all displayed the oil and water temp, among other things in this area...

The 4 pack guages are mostly an asthetics item, so not it's not needed but life would be much more boring if the cars we drove had only what was needed.
