Very similar layout to old 98 frontera, but think the lower warning lights are different.

I have never seen that version before.
Maybe it was only available in European countries.

NOPE! Maybe that is because Mr YJF is almost right Day! ;)

Who ever owns that Omega A has ba$tardi$ed the four gauge part of the Frontera's unit to fit into the Omega cluster. Its the lack of blue "cold" colouring that gives it away! The only other type of analogue instrumentation that was available from the Factory was the lowly 3 binnacle cluster version that was fitted to the bottom of the range and authority vehicles....



/\ /\ /\ like that one pictured above Murph!

HTH! :P
Nissan took a 600bhp NISMO Racecar and de-tuned this flagship Coupé for everyday use on public roads. GM took a reliable Carlton GSi 3000 24v and had Lotus convert it into a 377bhp Bahnstorming Lotus Carlton. Both vehicles were on sale from 1989....Which manufacturer would you trust with your cash??

Quite oddly...Mine too yellowjellyfish!!! ;) Well with hind-sight, I suppose I should've given you an 11 out of 10 for identifying the extra gauge clusters original origin Mr YJF coz our Murph (whose a seasoned Carlton expert) was almost convinced it was a European Factory option thanks to the quality of that guys modification.

You really think so Day? I'm too f'king lazy to do such a thing, just buy a Carlton or Senny with a Digi-Dash and "BINGO" You've got the extra battery and oil pressure gauges for free with no hassle either!
