Disclaimer: I’m not selling this! I posted this because it MAY interest someone as it is a super rare object. Don’t ask me any questions regarding the object as I do not own it!
If anyone has 40000 yen spare (roughly about 300 euro) you can buy an original Black Limited gauge cluster for your AE86:
Four hundred Black Limited cars were made and one of the distinguishing items on the car was an orange gauge cluster. So if you are building your own Black Limited copy you can make it a bit more genuine by buying this cluster. A whole lot better than making your own using an orange marker on your original cluster…
On a sidenote: I missed this one in the AE86 Trivia about the various gauge clusters, so I’ll add this one later on.
You can find the auction here:
Black Limited AE86 gauge cluster for sale at Auctions Yahoo.
If you need any help buying and importing this cluster to your country, you can use companies like Hayatonka to get them for you. Be aware that the total price can be a bit more than the 300 euros price of the auction.

Earlier I featured the AE86 GT-Apex Digi Dash and obviously it raises many AE86 enthusiasts hearts. This time I’d like to feature the normal AE86 cluster versus the AE85 cluster.
If you ever owned an AE86 (or watched too much Initial D) this cluster should be quite familar:
It is the standard JDM kouki AE86 cluster for RHD cars. Difference between the kouki and zenki cluster are the the white vertical lines and white needles that replaced the old orange needles.
Difference between JDM and UKDM gauge cluster is the speedo that reaches 150mph (240km/h). Unfortunately I haven’t found a picture of that cluster yet…
Difference between JDM and continental EUDM gauge cluster is the mirrored layout and speedo that reaches 240 km/h. Read the rest of this entry →

With the fresh new start of Stage 5 it kicks off with a fake Takumi and Keisuke (still have to watch the first episode fully…) it might be good to warn for all the real wannabe Takumis in the world that will start getting inspired again and try to do what you should not do at home kids:
Just like this Itsuki did half a year ago in the Utsunomiya prefecture…
Guess what they found inside this Tofu Special: Read the rest of this entry →
