That is an interesting question. The actual instrument is electric and what it displays is calculated by the MIU (the instrument cluster) from data broadcasted by the Trionic 7 unit on the powertrain CAN bus. I do not know if the non-Aero version of the software broadcasts the required information, but it probably does as the Tech-II instrument, IIRC, can read it. A MIU from a same year Aero may work, the reverse is certainly true; a non Aero 9-5 can be "upgraded" with a new turbo and an Aero Trionic 7 unit. Note that the MIU was changed for the model year 2002 cars. The old MIU use analog meter movements for the gauges, the new 2002 MIU use tiny stepper motors and the MIU itself is very thin. I don't know if they are compatible. -- G–ran Larsson
