Hey Mike,

the rings look great in there, glad you were able to install them *th-up*

Now you just need a nice Momo wheel to complete the interior ;)

how much were they

Why does yours say MPG (Miles per gallon) in your tach, when in my '86 it says L/100. Cause your speedo is in KMs. So I was just wondering why the difference.....

I think it's because his car started out as an eta but with the M50 he needed at 7K tach. He must have got the tach from a US car.

ding ding... and spence wins the race lol...
yup.. had a 5k eta tack and now with the M50 i need a 7 k tach. I also needed a gauge cluster that has support for a Check eng light as the 86 eta never came with one. Also the 86 eta dosent alow the swapping of the tach "chip" to chnge from 5k to 7k .. so now i have a 1987 325i cluster with a eta speedo

Just found your pics. Looks good. Did you make the heat shield yourself? I have been meaning to make one for a while now.

I think that they go for 50 to 75 cDN and they come pree "glued" as in you just peal them off of the tape and install them in your cluster. Now the fun part was taking apart the cluster. You have to remove the cluster then split it into the two parts and then remove the clear plastic cover face ( just tight fit with a few glue spots on mine ) I used a small flat blade and was very very carefull. Then clean everything with a good cleaner asd stick on the rings using your thumbs pushing outward to help center them. It realy easy when you try it. Then i used two sided tape to secure the clear plastic part back on. It fit tight without it but I wanted more protection lol.....

Cool, sounds like a nice upgrade :) must add one thing, be carefull not to hit the hand on the guages or the gauges will read incorrectly.
