The gauge cluster is clearly shown in one of the pics in that link...

All you need is a battery to get it to turn on - and then the KM are shown...

I am going to assume the KM are way up there... thats why the list the KM as unknown...

Price is fair I guess, tho I dont see too many decent parts on it. All the good stuff was taken off already.

Don't shoot the messenger boys. The car is at my friend's garage in KW, I'm just posting for him. Feel free to make an offer if you're interested.

Antonya - Either the coding plug/obc or whatever the E46 has to track mileage was stolen along with the panels, or the cluster itself was stolen from the yard before he could verify mileage on it. Not sure which. When we say "mileage unknown" it doesn't mean "it's so high we don't want to tell you". This is a theft recovery car so someone was driving it before it was stolen. Average mileage on a 99 would be somewhere around 150k.

Romaz - Agreed that there's a lot gone. Hence the price of $2800 and not $12,800. Panels are gone, but it does have a complete drivetrain, rear clip, glass, suspension, interior wheels etc.

The avg km driven per year is 30000km - the car may have around 240000km (that is using the avg) - it could possibly be more or less... but just using the 30k avg.

Not sure what its worth - just offering what I had noticed.

I actually want to get an M3 cluster... so if I do - will the KM change? or will the new cluster use my ecu to display the true KM?

you need to recode the cluster to use with your existing engine management computer...

well the rims are the only decent parts i see or maybe the carpets and stuff...given there is no way to tell if the engine will crank over...

I didn't put up a post asking anyone's opinion. I posted to sell something. If you're interested, make an offer. If you're not, don't. No commentary necessary.

That having been said, the mileage comment made me curious. After a quick google average mileage seems to be considered as 20-24k per year.

20k...

So taking the average of what others consider average, and assuming the car has been in service for 7.5yrs.

22,000 x 7.5yrs = 165,000 kms.
