that will work with the v6, notice the speedo? yours only goes to 130

they dont make reverse glows for the 4cyl with tach. anyhow they are cheaper on proparts.com

check the shipping and handling. $12?

those things weigh less than a pound, it shouldnt cost no damn $12 to ship that.

so you end up paying $35 for it.

in my lex ES250, the temp gauge and the fuel gaue are exact opposites of the ones on those overlays(on the corresponding sides, Tepm is on the left, Fuel on right)...is that just a lexus thing??

did you not read the post, those are for the v6, not the I4.

hence the second sentence in that post.

"they dont make reverse glows for the 4cyl with tach."

the speedo is wrong, your speedo will be way off if you put those in, if you want it to "work" i guess you could buy the non tach kit, use that speedo guage, and the v6 kit and use its tach.

it will work, but it will be very inaccurate.

but, like i said, if you get the v6 reverse gauges and the i4 guages, you can combine the i4 speedo with the v6 reverse glow guage to get it to work and be accurate. it would just cost you $70

The only way you could get gauges for your car is if you buy both a I4 and a V6 set. You would use the V6 faces for everything except for the speedo, in which you would use the I4 version speedo face instead.

The temp & fuel are also laid out on their sides with the needles pointing to the sides, whereas the camry needles point up... I've looked into getting reverse glows for an ES250 but the cluster has a different design that doesn't have a bezel around the guages. All the Camry Reverse glow kits utilize that bezel to hide the edges of the guage overlay. I've considered getting a cluster from a Camry V6 to mod with reverse glow, but in the end I decided to leave it be.
