Correct - unfortunately the signals that are sent to the instrument cluster are not a function of the DME or the cluster as it was on E39 M5 and E46 M3. It's actually sent from the DCT module which makes this extremely cost prohibitive for manual vehicles.
We are however, going to be designing a plug and play box in the trunk which will add this functionality. This will take some time to produce but we will definitely announce it when available.
