Default Upgrade to 2013 EVIC Possible?

May be a little early to ask this, but does anyone think it would be possible to upgrade to the 2013 EVIC if you've got a 2009-2012 black&white version? The new color, animated EVIC is wicked looking. I know you wouldn't be able to get the scrolling menu selector on the left, as that is built into the gauge, but could you do the center part only?

I've got a 2010 SLT with the 'standard' EVIC.

Replying to my own message... I just realized how much bigger the color EVIC is than the old black&white. Looks like it would require a complete dash upgrade. If I were a bett'n man, I'd say that's beyond my shoestring budget...

Not only that I am sure the new communication system they have for the new EVIC is crazy. You would need new wiring modules and all sorts of stuff. I can confidently say that it won't be possible without some MAJOR overhaul of electronics and dash.
