Arrow 6WB Multifunctional Instrument Panel Retrofit

Hi everyone,

I am very happy to show you the latest upgrade we did for one of our customers a few days ago.
We retrofitted the Multifunctional Instrument Panel in an F13 built when this cluster was not yet available.
Thank you Hung for choosing BimmerTech!

This retrofit can be done in the following models: F01, F02, F06, F10, F11, F12, F13.

I think it looks just great!!! How do you guys like it?

Cool! About how much does it cost to do this on an F13?

I have this option fitted to my new F11 and let me tell you it is AWESOME! Not only are the graphics very cool and legible, what none of the pictures show is that selected lists are made in the centre of the right hand dial, in combination with the thumbwheel on the right hand side of the steering wheel. This is incredibly clear and logical. Another benefit is that there are no semi-illuminated portions of the panel at night, as with the conventional part black panel. Navigation instructions 'float' in the centre as well as lane change and cruise proximity.
The little dials for oil temp and fuel level appear not to be LCD, but nicely hidden, so the effect is very consistent. I would recommend ordering this option to anyone...

Looks very nicely done. Maybe it's just me, but I prefer good 'ole real needles and gauges.

I wasn't going to take pics since I choose the same colors of the gran coupe in all the marketing material but I do have different wheels on, so I might as well. I will take some tomorrow during the day.

By the way, after seeing this video I got super impulsive and ordered the panel. This is what happens when you are Jewish and have nothing to do on Christmas eve.

lol. Can't wait to hear what you think about it. It's so cool, but I don't think I can justify it at this point. Looks like MY 2014 us going to be THE year for the F12/13. Maybe they'll fix the trunk and make the car (nearly) perfect.

Looking forward to the pics. Promo pics are great, but I prefer good owner pics that aren't quite so perfect. We don't get much variety around here, so I have to live (or see) vicariously through y'all.

I would love to get this panel but I lease so hopefully it will be around and standard equipment when its time for the next one.

Mazel Tov on the purchase. Pics when you get it please

The good thing about this retrofit is that once it's done you can easily swap both clusters without any additional coding/programming.
When your lease is over you can sell the instrument panel.

Posted the pics in the gran coupe forum. Not sure why they are not showing up as images but the links work.

"Easily swap" huh... hmmm. Sooo tempting.

It's true plug and play? Any wire cutting/splicing? Will it work with all my factory installed options that easily?

Look at the install video posted by djaaad1.
When you unplug the old cluster and plug the new one we need to program your car once over the Internet to finalize this retrofit.
When the new instrument panel is retrofitted you can just swap both cluster whenever you want.
It's that simple

Until I'm out of warranty I would not make a modification like this. One look at the dealership and they will blame everything under the sun on this type of change.

It's not really an issue. You can swap the clusters yourself in minutes whenever you want to take your car to BMW. No additional coding/programming required.
