Default Gauge cluster programmable? and

First, I was wondering if it was possible for a new gauge cluster to have my current # of miles programed on it? I have searched and there doesnt seem to be a definitive answer about this subject. Does anyone know for sure if it's possible and where it can be done at? ie. dealer or private company?

Second, does anyone know the part # for an '05 sti cluster? I have searched and was only able to find the '04 part # 85021fe050.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This debate was raging in the General Community forum...
Yes, you can get the cluster reprogrammed to show your correct mileage. Some say dealers can do this. Others say go to a private company... "Tacoma Speedometer" was mentioned in a search. Another option (which is required anyway) is to put a sticker on the door post indicating the true mileage.

But apparently putting an '05 cluster into a non-'05 car is a real PITA/borders on impossible/not worth the time, and everyone says just to stick with the '04 cluster. Any reason why you want an '05 cluster?

Thanks for the info. I have a friend who works at a shop that is selling a new sti cluster they don't need anymore. I'm trying to find out if it is an '04 or '05 by tracking down the part numbers for each so I can tell which year it is when I take a look at it this weekend. I would definitly prefer an '04 because it is alot easier to hook up. I researched how to make the '05 cluster work but like you said it is definitly more of a pain to do so.

hey if its an 05 and u don't want it I can shoot you some cash for it if its for sale, got a n o5 with a bad cluster and the dealership wants to rape me. As for mileage there is a 3rd party website that does it, dealerships cannot, all they can give you is a correction sticker.
