just tried it in 2000 328ci and everything works including the rpm lights,since the rpm lights work by engine temp,it works on non m3's as well.Very cool...

I don't think the tach will be off, but your redline will be WAY off

tach is not off,just the redline.Oil temp gauge now works as an mpg gauge,it moves like it did on the regular e46.It is plug and play,just remove 2 screws on top of the cluster and pull the cluster out,on the back there is 2 plugs,take them off and put it in the m3
cluster and reattach the 2 screws to the new m3 cluster,takes 5 minutes for everything.

Uh, what about your speedo? :dunno: If I'm not mistaken, the M3 has a higher "top speed," so I would think the spedometer would be at a different scale to allow the higher numbers...so you're speedo is now off. You need to run side by side with a friend at a mutual speed and see if you stay side by side.

the m3 has lights on the tach that gradually fall away to redline (start around 3500 rpm i think) as your oil temp warms. does this still work or do those lights/function not apply on regular e46's?

Interesting!! :D :D :D

Please take pictures!

also, does your odometer still read the correct milage on your car?

TIA

Ray

It does not read the correct mileage,it reads the mileage that is on the m3 cluster.

You're kidding . . . you're telling me if I put in a new guage cluster I suddenly have a "new"car?

How is that going to affect your odometer reading if you were going to sell your car. Can you just put back in your original cluster and say that it's the correct odometer reading (which will probably be less than what's on the M3 cluster) if you decide to sell it. Or does BMW stores miles in the OBC as well.

TIA...

that doesnt make any sense, we have electronic odometers not those crppy old rollover ones, they are stored into the obc, do you think the screen remembers the numbers when you turn the car off?

and even if for some retarded reason the mileage were diff, you dont change the screen, just the actual cluster peices, im sure they are the same size

Hmmm... that doesn't make sense. The mileage shouldn't be recorded in the cluster. When you replace the cluster it should read the acutal mileage. Maybe it needs to be reset by the dealer.
