Ahhh yeah baby, I just called a Mazda auto wrecker, and a digital dash cluster will be at my door in 2-3 business days! Only 125 and 15 for shipping, way cheaper than 1100 for a new one! If anyone wants one, call 1800-699-2664 G'luck! I'll post some pix, once I get it installed.

the dash i cant find

Hey
are you Sure its for the 88 and later? I have both an 87 626 and an 88 mx-6, the 87 i have found dozens of digital dashes for and i sell them for 100 a piece to people overseas. I am Intensly searching for a USA digital dash for the 88 on up. If you find one, i will take it. i think mazda recycling has em for $75 a piece, but i havent asked if they have the 88 on up. Let me know man

will fit a 90-92 too

If there is a green lighted digital dash for 88-89 models, i dont see how it couldnt work with a 90-92, the wiring is the same.

differences between 89-90

in 89 and earlier, they had yellow and red taillights, 90-92 had all red tail lights. 90-92 had one piece spoilers, as 88-89 didnot. the front signal lights are slightly different as well, but look the same

I took a look at the light bulbs in the digital dash. I pulled some of them out, and they are standard size bulbs (194's) but some are smaller. The reason why they light up green is because they are painted that color. So, if you wanted to make it a different color, go buy some bulbs and pain em. I got my diigtal dash in, but ran into problems w/the one I bought. the mazda dismantling place, is sending a replacement.

When I got my digital cluster in I noticed that above the buttons the word read outs were gone. I called the dismantling place back up and they are sending a different one. That'll be here tomorrow.

P.S. I saw The Fast and The Furious last night. All I have to say is that movie is a BOOOOOOOOOOOONER ROLLERCOASTER!!!!

I'm gonna put in the replacement cluster in hopefully this week. When the replacement cluster came in, it was for an auto (screwed up at the place I bought it from) so I said screw it, I ripped off the word mantle off the one they just sent, and I'm gonna super glue it to the original that they sent. But as far as selling my dial guages go, I'm going to keep the, in case my digital one blows up.
