It is the bulb, mine is currently intermittent, when i get in if it is out i smack that side of the dash until it lights up.
I think i knocked it loose when i have the cluster out.

If that does not work for you it is the bulb that has blown.

Touching your "wood" is somthing completely different than knocking on it bro!

It's kinda of sacrilegious in the bmw world to put m badges on a non m..... to each their own.

There is no need, but i plan on starting a full ///M conversion. Plus those spots looked like they needed something.
Already gotten the wiring loom and switch for EDC, need the module, and few other odds and ends, found an M from bumper, possibly the rear if i can fix it.
Then onto sport seats, other misc items.
I want to find every option that was available to the E34 and retrofit it, so i can actually say FULLY LOADED, not when people say this and have the basic OBC.......
