The stock instrumentation cluster of the Honda S2000 emits an orange glow as a result of incandescent bulbs and filters. Using the stock incandescent bulbs system, it is impossible to change the color of the instrumentation to a non-orange base color using filters alone.

Qube Engineering has developed a product that allows you to change the color of the instrument cluster without limitation.   By exchanging the orange incandescent bulb system with a true white light emitting diode (LED) system, you can now choose any color for your instrumentation.

How does it work?

The incandescent bulb system of the stock S2000 instrument cluster is replaced by a white LED array with a light diffuser.  This white light can then be passed through a set of color filters, resulting in a bright, color-rich light visible at any time of day, even top down in direct sunlight with sunglasses on.

Do the brightness controls still work?

Yes. The brightness controls work the same way that the OEM AP2 brightness controls work. There is a separate memory setting for when the headlights are on and for when the headlights are off.

What are the drawbacks?

Qube’s LED Gauge Cluster requires slight modification to the plastic housing that the original incandescent bulbs sit in. If you want to switch back to a stock configuration, it is very easy to do so and any modification done to the housing is undetectable when reassembled.

The OEM brightness controller is bypassed in favor of using a regulated brightness controller onboard the LED product. Because of this, the "+" and "-" buttons change the brightness of the gauge cluster even when you are setting the clock. If necessary, simply set your brightness level again once your clock is set.

How do I get one?

Qube's LED Gauge Cluster is available as a fully assembled Core Exchange, as a "Send Your Core", and as a Do-It-Yourself kit.

CORE EXCHANGE VERSION - A finished LED Gauge Cluster unit built to your order specifications will be shipped to you for installation. The Core Exchange installation process is fairly simple and requires only some basic tools. Once you complete the install, you will ship your OEM parts back to Qube Engineering.

SEND YOUR CORE VERSION - If you want to avoild the wait list for a true core exchange and have the luxury of being able to be without a gauge cluster for a few days, you can send your OEM gauge cluster in for modification.

DO-IT-YOURSELF VERSION - In addition to the Core Exchange installation procedure, installation of the DIY kit will require some additional gauge cluster assembly / disassembly, minimal modification of your plastic gauge cluster housing using plastic snips, and simple soldering of one wire.

What is the cost?

Please check the Purchase page for the latest pricing information. Additional shipping charges and California Sales Tax may apply.

How do I install it?

The installation instructions are available at our Documentation page.
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to read them, downloadable from Adobe.com.
The total installation process should take between 30-45 minutes.

I’m a klutz. Can I do the install myself?

Qube's LED Gauge Cluster is available as a fully assembled Core Exchange and as a Do-It-Yourself kit.

CORE EXCHANGE VERSION and SEND YOUR CORE VERSIONS- A finished LED Gauge Cluster unit built to your order specifications will be shipped to you for installation. The Core Exchange installation process is fairly simple and requires only some basic tools.

DO-IT-YOURSELF VERSION - In addition to the Core Exchange installation procedure, installation of the DIY kit will require some additional gauge cluster assembly / disassembly, minimal modification of your plastic gauge cluster housing using plastic snips, and simple soldering of one wire.

If, after reading the instructions, you still feel that you are unable to install the device yourself, your local auto repair shop should be able to do it for you. Just provide them a printout of the instructions.

Is there a waiting list?

CORE EXCHANGE VERSION - Yes. There are 2 AP2 v1.x Gauge Cluster cores in circulation at any given time. Once a core comes back for modification, the next person on the wait list will be notified.

SEND YOUR CORE VERSION - No. Because you will be using your own core, there is no wait list. Orders will be handled in a timely manner. Please contact us directly if you have concerns with turnaround time.

DO-IT-YOURSELF KIT - No. The DIY Kit is available for immediate shipping. Some additional turnaround time may be required for custom orders.

What if something goes wrong?

Although Qube’s LED Gauge Cluster has been rigorously tested and each unit undergoes a burn in test, things are bound to happen.  If the LED Gauge Cluster malfunctions for any reason, aside from physical damage, within 6 months of purchase, it will be immediately taken care of at no cost to you. Simply send it back and it will be either fixed or replaced and returned to you as soon as humanly possible along with a full reimbursement for your shipping costs.

If you have questions about the product, please check our FAQ page or feel free to Contact Us.
