Remember, it's a good will offer, they could give you nothing. The longer you owned the car (for example, original owner or second owner since 2002, etc.) the more generous BMWNA had been. While BMWNA's offer may not sound good to you, these cars are getting old and not too many companies would cover any costs for a 10+ year old product.

That being said, many have paid $300 with VDORepair rather than take the BMWNA offer.
Actually, I thought the offer sounded great! Thats why I said I was "pleasantly" surprised. I figure if they are willing to pay $325. there abouts, thats $325. I dont have to come up with. I already got the confirmed email and they just want my ok on it. I just tell them which dealer I'll be using and they set up the rest. I guess I can call the dealer and ask them the price of the cluster.....
