Default 2011+ gauge cluster with white faces?

Hey guys,

I noticed something at a cruise night with the local club that got me scratching my head. A guy there had a 2011 GT premium vert with white-faced gauges (speedo and tach). His car had Brembos and the tech package, if it matters...

I guess I had always assumed these cars only had black-faced guages like my '12 V6. Do any of you guys know what package/option might have spec'd the white faces, or how might I get me some? They looked sweet

We're car shopping at the moment, we've only looked at 11/12 Premiums so far, and they've all had white faced gauges.

I had the white gauges in my 2012 and hated them .. they looked out of place. Swapped them to black from a base car overlay. I have the 2013 gauges now so they are also black.

I'll sell you my 2012 cluster as shown in this picture. Not sure if you car would have the wiring to control the MYCOLOR though. Cluster has around 6800 miles on it. If you are interested I'll explain where the 2 wire would be.

Wow, thanks for the replies guys, I guess I should've done a little more research (google failed me!). I had the owner of the 'vert wondering as well, as the '13 Roush and the '10 GT that were there as well had black face gauges.

dmhines, what overlay did you swap in? Is it something like these?

Thanks for the info, just something that got my interest as a potential mod...

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought i read that the mileage is stored inside the car, ecu or something I can't remember, and that swapping your gauge with a different one will still display YOUR cars actual mileage.

No. It's the factory overlay from a non premium car.

Damn Dmhines - now your making me want to trade down to the base cluster...I hate you . First the GT/CS '13 cluster (that I see you have installed and working 95%) and now this.

LOL .. you just need the base overlay .. that way you keep MyColor and the extra gauges.

Mileage is stored in Cluster not ECU.

I'm glad Ford smartened for 2013+ and went back to black gauges:

No the only way I will switch is if I can get the CS gauges to work withouth adding or splicing wires. I know your main post for the swap are on TMS but how much did you spend on getting that CS one to work?
Did you have to send the cluster off to get it programed/go to Ford to get it programed?
Besides the CC light, and My Track app did everything else work?
Can you just substitue a '13 GT500 steering wheel or did you have to run your own wires no matter what?

Thanks,
Matthew

LOL I guess to each his own on the white-faced gauges, I kinda liked them If you guys find yourself wanting to get rid of your white overlay, pm me! I assume the premium overlay would fit my base car if it works the other direction.

Lol, everyone just wants to change their cars. Came with black gauges? Must get white faced. Came with white faced gauges, gotta go with black faced. Came with side scoops, must delete them (Ala 99-04 Bullitt deletes that were so popular). Came without side scoops, must add them (05+).

You mean the 2013 gauges? Nothing special about CS gauges. $85 to reset the odometer and $90 to do a Pats Relearn to install the cluster. I made a custom OK button .. so I am using the original 2012 factory buttons to control the display and 2012 steering wheel.

Tracks Apps doesn't work. Neither do the extra gauges (IAT, Head temp, etc).

that is completely true. Something about seeing seeing someone else playing with a toy in the sand box and deciding "I have to have that toy" and now that you have it you relize you dont want it anymore.

Ahh that is to much for me. I played around with my '95 tons and had wires running everywhere on that car behind the gauge bezel. I will leave this one alone. If its not plug in and play I am not doing it...or thats what I say now. Give me a few years and that will probably change.

If you got a 2013 PCM .. it would be plug and play ... and coughing up some money to the Ford Tech to get everything programmed and working.
