Default '05 speedo mod

I have a '05 jetta TDI with the newer "euro" cluster skins (160 mph). I'd prefer looking at the cluster skins from a '03 TDI (rpm every 200 and 140 mph). It's an easy skin swap but is there a way to use VCDS to adapt the speedo reading arc from 160 to 140mph?

As far as i know you can't reprogram the Cluster from 140 to 160 or vise versa, so your best bet is to just get an 03 cluster which has 140 Mph foils
Another option is to get an 04-06 Mk4 Golf cluster, it has the 160mph but the foils are not silver, below is the pics of a 2005 Golf Cluster

OOOOOoh! That's exactly what I want. I don't like the silver and small tick marks on the '05 Jetta cluster. This (and the older) clusters are much easier to read with a quick scan than the newer ones. Ask any pilot about a quick scan, they'll agree. Now I just have to find one like yours.
