I need a gauge cluster…

Does anyone have one that they are looking to sell? I'd rather one with new SI batteries. It must be in km’s and it must be working. I already have two that don’t work!

Thanks,

Spencer

I've talked with Laurence; his parts are way over priced and he was a dick to me last time I was there.
He wanted over $300 for a used cluster and I had to give him my old one to get that price.
Also, all of his clusters have been sitting on a shelf and the SI batteries are dead. I spent 3 hours there last summer putting in countless clusters and none of them worked.

Laurence wanted $220 for a rear aluminum bumper in okay condition without the hardware or trim piece. That’s crazy.

If worst comes to worst Ill buy one from him. I bet once you get to know him he gives better prices.

Anyone else?

Spencer

yeah he hooks me up all the time. We went down there and he helped up do the center bearing, i never even bought it from him, it was brand new. I bought my car off of him, and he let us use his shop to do the motor swap and gave us all sorts of tips. He's a smart guy when it comes to bimmers. If i need anything for my car, he'll usally just give it it me, cause he doesn't want to sell a POS car, so he hooks me up pretty good. Maybe tell him i sent you. no promises though.


if not I and M imports is where i buy all my new parts, they're always cheaper then anyone.

your best bet is to go in though, you'll be on the phone for a while cause it's always so busy. It's right on 156st just south of 118th ave, you'll see the sign on the side of the road.

Okay thanks.

He's only good to you because you bought your car there. He told me that once I buy a bunch of crap he'll give me better deals.

Anyone have a cluster?

Spencer

How many Km's on the cluster and what year is if from? Is it made by Motometer or VDO? Does it take a code plug? Does it have 5K or 7K tach?

I don't know what the going rate for a cluster is - How does $100 shipped sound?
I need other things too. Give me info on the parts car.
