That vette cluster was a terrible decision by GM. Good luck ever finding a replacement in working condition again lol.

This digital climate control has potential, but it just seems out of place in our cars. I've got my ideas for a full bulb replacement on the cluster, climate, radio, and buttons. I'll be contacting LexTech soon!

I think that I would want straight dials. Nothing to go wrong, simple, looks nice. This still looks great though.

Wow that is pretty amazing. Can't wait to see the finished product. I can definitely see myself getting something like this.

It doesn't look bad hope it's not expensive. But we definitely need something done about this.

The pictures and video show a prototype, not a production version. I am very interested in this, including the boost monitoring controls. If they follow through I'll probably get this, although I want to see the final look and final features.

I really like the effort that was put into this. Obviously it's not finished yet and it could end up looking really sweet. I actually find the SC's climate control works amazing. I prefer it to many modern cars, especially my Mom's BMW which has horrible climate controls.

The stock climate controls has actual buttons, so you don't have look at what you're doing. With a touch screen you always have to be looking right at the thing. The same reason why touch screen remote controls sucks, you always have to look at the damn thing to use it.

I really like the effort. I think this product would be great for a more performance oriented car. The stock climate better suits the interior on the SC and is more luxurious .

Either way. This could end up being really cool once finished.

I agree with you. I actually like having buttons so I don't have to look down. This aftermarket one has a cool interface but it looks out of place to me.

The less gauges I have to add to moniter boost, egt, etc... the better! I can't wait to see finished product.

It's functions are very impressive, and the touch screen is kinda cool too. I just wish the trim didnt look so cheap, and that it had a better looking interface

I have a spare display & controller from my old Dodge Stealth. Wonder if I could retrofit it into my SC? I haven't used another HVAC that I liked better.

It's just fan speed and a few blend doors...
