Try doing a search for this. A few select people have the altezza gauge cluster.

Personally I wouldn't expect it to be plug and play.
Considering that the altezza world uses a different unit of measurement than we do...as well as a different engine revving to a diff rpm limit.

I have a JDM Altezza gauge cluster in my IS and its working fine (but mine is a 5sp mt and its not a plug and play set up ) i really dont know what the problem would be???. it might be your fuse, check on that .
Heres some pics of JDM cluster on my IS.

My guess is that the exclamation symbol has something to do with the parking brake.

This cluster is not entirely plug and play. You might have to change some pins on the back in the wiring harness.

Altezzas beep when they go in reverse. as a matter of fact almost all japanese cars do.

carbon fiber altezza......in your first pic your rpm's are maxed out is that normal......i just put in my cluster this past week and the only thing i find wrong is the true 7'400 rev lim doesnt pick up until 10,000 on this cluster.......i know im not really going that high just was wondering if all the clusters did that.....thanks

so the engine is reving stock...but the numbers are bunched together on the jdm face so 8krpm is in the place where 6400rpm used to be...looks good

why would u even change out the cluster.....it'll be cheaper and more reasonable just to stick an altezza sticker on it instead

I don't even run a 7400 redline on my car. I'm lowered compression with a standalone.

Does your e-shift still work? despite there the altezza cluster doesn't show the "gear #".
