FEELER: M3 cluster parts

Just wondering if anybody would be interested in a set of red OBDII M3 cluster needles, and the M3 version of the warning light strip. Basically give your cluster the ///M treatment. I went back to white needles after doing the blue LED conversion. $50 picked up, or $80 installed.
Dave

Best way to give your cluster the M3 look without haveing to pay 200 for an M3 cluster. Bump for an awesome seller and sick upgrade.

E36
... It takes an hour or two to remove the cluster, disassemble, install new parts, and reinstall into the car. For $50 total, not worth the time... sorry

my gauge rings took me all of 10 minutes... farting around with the needles is a bit different... took me a couple times before they all lined up exactly perfect. Marking them only gets you close, as the original needles could have been off a bit. Eg... my tach and speedo needles are an exact physical representation of what is digitally displayed on the OBC/cluster for those values. The stock needles were 5-7% off... That is what takes the time, and I won't do it half-assed, thus the price. If I wouldn't do it in my car, I definitely wouldn't do it to someone else's...

What does the M strip in the cluster consist of? Is it the M symbol that sits in the middle where the ASC light is?

Lemme know

So you still have all the parts for sale? Does the M cluster have the ASC light located on a different spot or does the M logo function as the ASC light?

Lemme know, i'm interested in the cluster needles

The needles are still around, the ///M strip has been cut to accomodate the backlit logo from BF.c. See my thread in the E36 section. You'll likely want to go that route, since the end results are so great. Anyway, let me know if you'd like the needles, and we can work something out... dave
