well what kind/year porshe is it?

if it's just a simple cluster it could be as easy as changing up the backing displays with some new ones

but then again, getting anything that fits would probably have to be OEM and be pretty pricey

The speedometer has an analog and digital display.. you will need to do both, but knowing Porsche Canada you will need a new cluster.

what display did you want changed? the analog one or the digital one? the digital one can be changed by using the lever on the left and going through the settings, and going to units and changing it assuming your porsche is fairly new, if your doing it for a provincial inspection or a federal, the digital speedo in km is allowed, as for the analog, you'd have to go porsche for that

Telling us the year of your Porsche would help. If it is a 996 and later, it can be done through the trip indicator stalk.
