I wish @garw would make an Evora dash replacement as nice as the Elise/Exige ones. 

This has been developed already on the electronics and software side , the sticking point is the mechanical fitting .

A suitable screen size is 12.3 wide , but this would be too large at the corners , 

Take a look at the electric evora with Tesla drive , he had a 12.3 in there and holes were needed for the corner of the screen . 

I don't want to hijack the thread , so if someone wants to discuss this further I suggest starting a new thread .

 

..... back to this thread , it is possible to correct the mileage in an original evora instrument cluster , I have one for bench testing  all the canbus codes . And correcting the mileage is part of the instrument clusters canbus messages 

So if someone buys a used cluster the mileage stored in it can be corrected to your cars mileage .

It seems they might have created a custom cowling for it.

I'd be very very interested!

Could you not just keep the two side screens within the existing housing and replace the centre instruments with one screen,  or use one central one and two smaller ones. That way you could keep the original look but adapt it to individual preference?

Yes, a 3 screen approach was investigated and it is possible to fit into the mechanical outline of the original.

Cost was the issue here , 

2 extra screens and an extra processor to drive the additional screens .

below you can see the bulge where the corner of the 12.3 was covered over ,  there are videos and pictures of it before the retrim

So would one central screen be possible to replace the clocks while retaining the side screens?

It's a good looking mod this one but I'm not sure it gels with the rest of the car though - if something can be done with the media unit so suit then it would appeal more

Yes possible , to make a product to replace the existing cluster it would involve reworking an original cluster ,

and to do that an exchange system will  be needed to get hold of the necessary Evora Clusters ,

but a lot of Evora owners would want to keep the original to revert back later if they sell the car or change their mind

Bruss there is a chap in the states who advertises on eBay new printed legends for standard clusters.

It would be nice to have an electronic centre, which can show reversing camera, sat nav,  start up graphic etc but also mimic the standard dials

I also have a spare instrument cluster, kph though.

I did see those but was concerned at both how good they line up and also my capability .  😁

Just as an aside, I was an early buyer of @garw's 8" screen for the VX220. It's really well made for what it's worth and is a substantial piece of kit, very nice. So, if anything is produced for the Evora I'd have high hopes for it indeed :)

No response to “contact us” feature of their website, when enquiring of availability of Exige screens  :(
