Cosmetic Change to Instrument Cluster

A subtle cosmetic change to the extended instrument cluster can be made with a simple code change.

Normally the lower part of the cluster shows a series of subtle orange lines at the bottom both during the day or the night.

If you change:

KOMBI->3000 Anzeige_Konfiguration->HINTERGRUND_FARBE_TAG->Grau

You get gray lines instead of orange during the day.

The setting for night is:

KOMBI->3001 Anzeige_Konfiguration->HINTERGRUND_FARBE_NACHT->Orange or Grau

Both of these settings are orange by default (night or day). I personally think that Gray looks and blends better for the day display.

I wonder if you can have the daytime instrument cluster (with white lighting) at night? I'm not a huge fan of all the orange.

@f01driver,

I hear you. I also do not like the orange cluster.

I was sure I had the right code to change this, but it did not work as I expected. I am still searching and I have a couple of candidates.

Nice! Love it!

Did you come across any function to remember: fog lights on with high beam (or automatic high beam) position after turning the car off/on?

Shawnsheridan,

I thought this was one of the already published code changes? Am I wrong?

I published NSW_AUS_BEI_FL, which in most cases allows High Beam and Fogs simultaneously, but I was not understanding his on/off part. I thought he was referring to some other functionality.

Looks like 2013 f01 doesn't have the lower orange bit;

I guess it could be changed to orange, but it looks great with the gray at the bottom.

Oh, that's not my picture...I found it on eBay and it's interesting that BMW has switched to gray over the orange. I prefer the gray, I'm going to code it this weekend.

f01driver,

If you wait about 24 hours I am hoping to find how to keep daytime mode all the time by then. That way you can code both at the same time.

I would exchange my gray and white cluster for that one in a second

Here you go

If you look at the attached photo you will notice that the fog lights are on with automatic headlight position, once you turn the car off then on you need to manually press the fog lights button (on) in order to engage the fog lights again. Isn't there a code that would make the car remember the last fog lights status (whether on/off) before switching the car off?.

I don't have this option on my '12 F10, only hintergrundbild enable -> aktiv / nicht_aktiv with a default value of 01. I tried changing the value to 02, but it only made the lines disappear completely as the value was changed to 00 and switched to nicht_aktiv. Any ideas? I wonder why it's different on my car.

What model/year is it? It might just mean that your cars sw is older/newer then ours.

I have the values on my car, and I don't even have the cluster.
