Plasma Tachos aka Glowing Hologram Cluster/Speedo Aftermarket kit

I have been informed by one of my customers he will be performing the Plasma Speedo conversion on his Euro Mercedes. He was kind enough to share this information with us as at this time we are unaware of any kind of kit for sale in the US like it.

Have a look at this item in this photo below-

It has chrome beauty rings to hide the wires ang other protruding connectors that look like this-

The items are listed on German E-bay by the user PowerStyling and the cost is not that bad. The conversion looks like it would be rather challenging considering the complex nature of a cluster. I would imagine that the cluster needles and old instrument backings would have to be removed to install these units. Considering this item only seems to be Aval. in KPH rather than MPH I was thinking about maybe buying one, and having stickers made up to show MPH. Only problem is I don't think they would light up like the others. Should I ever get my hands on these items I will be sure to do a full write up on our Private Web Workplace just like we have done on so many other repairs.

While its not really a hologram instrument cluster, I think in the dark it may almost look that way. Only thing to do now is to figure out how to get lights in the needles!

Anyone ever installed these items?

This person known as "M" has also told us that the proper Euro Term for this conversion is "Plasma Tachos".
