I am pretty sure the manual cars have a slightly different gauge cluster in that the auto has a little box that tells you what gear you are in, other than that they dont matter that I am aware of. I'd stick with one from a manual.

You need a manual instrument cluster for your manual car, they are different for sure.

Also be aware, there is a tamper indicator that will be tripped if the cluster and light control module (LCM) interpretation of the mileage do not match. I believe dealer coding is required when you replace the cluster to avoid issues with this.

yes.....jvr826 is right. otherwise anyone could change the speedo to roll back the milege and trick the next buyer. dealer has to code the new cluster.......
