Interested in this, did you ever try it? Used clusters are cheap, just wonder what the PRND will do since most 2012 and newer cars are 8 speeds...

Alright, I went ahead and did it. This thread has a perfect title for future searches so I might as well hijack it, no one else on this forum appears to have it written up, though I'm sure many people have done this...

I decided to stay as close to MY2011 as possible for the swap so I put a 2012 cluster in. Instant improvement! It looks much nicer than the black and white screen and even seems to work fine with the RB5 NAV radio pop ups.

There are some issues, though. I can no longer find the cruise control set speed on the speedometer or fuel mileage screens. I can change the speed with the steering wheel buttons but don't see any change on the screen. Not sure where that's supposed to be on a 2012 EVIC?

The PRND indicator works fine until you use the AutoStick, the 5-speed transmission doesn't show what gear you're in if you use it, the box around the "D" just disappears. Maybe that feature is just for the 8-speed...

I think this particular cluster might be compromised in some way, though. It was filthy when I got it (what do you want for $60? lol) and the "chime" when you start the car sounds like a cheap toy gone bad. I might try a different one later but for now I'm pretty happy with it.
