The onboard computer pixels were missing so bad I could not read anything from the onboard computer. I ordered the ribbon from pixelfix because his video made the job look easy and the price was good. I will say replacing the ribbon is very difficult. I have had the cluster apart 5 times and still can not get the ribbon lined up. The last attempt has so many pixels lit up I cant distinguish anything.

If you are considering doing this be forewarned it is much more difficult than the video they show.

I've done it 3 times: 1 on my old 3.0 X5, twice on 2 different E39. I used the write-up link bimmerforums. No problem.
I do agree that it's not as easy as it looks, but do-able for me.
