I'm considering buying a '17 Civic LX.

I was wondering if it's possible to change the colors of the digital instrument cluster (fuel, MPH, engine temp., etc.) from blue to red?

Or would I have to buy an aftermarket instrument cluster?

I believe that the hatch sport/sport touring are the only ones getting the red for now, SI and R will be red.

:confused:That may be wishful thinking on my part because I plan on getting the "regular sport", truth is I have yet to see any pictures of anything but the touring.The other wishful thinking is that the chrome above the side windows will be blacked out like the touring.

You're basically stuck with whatever factory color you get. I tried to find a way but the only mention of a color change is the instrument cluster is of the ambient meter and that thing changes automatically.

your at the point where you have to get the actual light assembly replaced if you want a different color and for that its best you send it to a company that specializes in clusters. check forums of older generation civic's, you'll be more likely to find those companies their.

They're all over now, I'm in Rhode Island and there were only a few around here. I still have to mess around with the color settings.

Thanks Hawk; went to the dealership today and they have two sports in, one blue one gray, they have had them for over two weeks! I asked if my salesman was in and they said he quit over two weeks ago, explains why he didn't call me. Anyway; test drove the sport and love it, little extra power, little extra growl, sunroof, blind-spot camera, dual climate, and orange instrument cluster. Bad news they want me to take a $6400 loss on my two month-2000km 2016 LX sedan. I told them I would bring in a buyer for my car then we will make the deal. One way or the other I'm getting one!!

Sport does not have a sunroof or blind spot camera, you need to go EX.

Yes the Canadian Sport has all that plus a lot more over the LX, It is basically an "EX Sport" versus the U.S. "LX Sport", but comes at a premium of $5000 over the LX sedan.

Worth it if you get so many more features and you don't mind the price difference. Hope you can get a buyer for your sedan because that's a huge price depreciation hit.

At this point it might be a good idea to call around a few dealers to see how many they have, which could mean dealers got in on another batch. If a sport is what someone wants better get them now before that batch runs dry or thin till the next comes around. But as long as your willing to wait there won't be an issue.

If you do the math the U.S. sport is $1300 more than the lx sedan, and the Canadian sport is $1300 more than the ex sedan. Either way your paying $1300 more for the sport than the similarly equipped sedan. That's not much in my opinion for the up-grade, and you will get that back at trade in time plus some.

i think the aero kit alone costs more than that if you were to buy from dealer...
