Rob530iA, i recall you added the gauage rings to your cluster from some other thread in this forum. And also i recall you didn't have to disconnect the negative post from the battery.Rob530iA said:To clean the inside of the cluster, follow the instructions for installing Gauge Rings. You will need to take it apart to get to the inside. But then you might as well buy gauge rings since you will have it apart, if you like them.
how about the VF 6psi ($6k) or even their add-on 8psi kitgixxer said:I wish i can find a nice (eg. CPO with low mileage, single owner, non-smoker, etc.) used 2003 540i 6SP (with or without M-Technic aero option) at some point since i had hell of a time finding "new" 2003 540i 6SP back in October 2003 in state when i was looking for E39. And at the end i had to go out of state to settle for what was then new 2003 530iA. Still new 2003 540i 6SP would have been way too much money, i think at least $50K or something like that. Used version makes owning 540i much more affordable, but still new would have been nice. Sigh... Oh well, at least there's hope, eg. ESS's 7 psi supercharger that puts out allegedly ~330 BHP/300 LB-FT (not at the rear wheel though), i wonder what that power/torque feels like, but at least $7K. Yike!!!
