glad to see its working. I've ordered the LED's and chips from digikey, hopefully it'll arrive soon and try this mod by myself.
thanks for the tip , as for the "tachoscheibe" I don't know that in english. Have you sourced it?Just take your time
I used a small soldering tip and small tweezers. Was a bit fiddly but worked on the first try. Just make sure, you dont have any shorts
I have M3 cluster on my car, but its the original m3 one, it act the same like yours. When the engine is cold like I've parked the car for a night then in the morning I turned the car up the LED's is fully turn on like the picture below, but when the engine is on fully working temperature the LED's would go down to 7000 RPM. So I think yours is completely normal.
Maybe u can read out an eeprom from your cluster and upload it here so we can take out a speedo and tacho curve and adjust normal cluster to corectly rev to 9k rpm?glad to see its working. I've ordered the LED's and chips from digikey, hopefully it'll arrive soon and try this mod by myself.
is it hard to do the "soldering" part?
one question though, where did you bought your cluster overlay?While operating the regular cluster with the LEDs we notice that they are only properly placed inside the m3 cluster since the segmentation of the rpm is slightly different.
so to do it like 99 percent correctly you would need to solder some wires and then move the leds to the proper position.
