Sorry if this has already been asked - but reading through the doco on the trip computer install I see that a few things have to be attatched to the instrument cluster. I was just wondering, seeing as though I already have the trip computer (not installed yet) but not the instrument cluster, would it be annoying to hook up the trip computer first, and then the cluster later when I get one?
Or would it be easier to wait until I get the new cluster to install the trip computer?

nah, its no problem to do the trip computer first, there is only 2 or so wires that have to come from the cluster, an they are always present regaurdless of cluster series (LCD dimming prolly wont be there, but you dont need it)
