Question on gauge cluster

my tach is going kaput on my 325.
my question is will a m3 gauge cluster plug right up(same plugs on harness?), because i will most likely change to a s52 someday and i really see no need on getting another 325 gaugecluster(redline low). The second question is will the 325 ecu drive the tach just fine? or would i need a tach adaptor.
my car is a 09/92 325is 5speed.
thank you in advance,

Andy

It should work just fine......always match a six cyl. gauge cluster with a six cyl. Remember that a 4 cyl. cluster won't work on a 6 cyl. car.......PJ

well the difference on 4cyls and 6's it the timing pulse is different, so a 4cyl tach would be at redline at like 3k on the engine.
