2011 BMW e92 M3  [4.55]
Lightbulb Euro 8 Button Preset Cluster Installed

I coded my car for 8 presets vs 6 long ago since I never used the AM/FM or Mode buttons. Over time, OCD got the best of me and I got the Euro Bezel cluster to compliment the coding of 8 presets the right way.

A little bird delivered it to me straight from Germany today. The part [65129270250] is not available in the states. EU only.

New vs Old....

Pretty much, mostly because I have a CIC car which already has plenty of shortcut buttons on the controller, but I'm always looking for new useful shortcuts.

I can find it on RealOEM, but where/how did you order? Google isn't doing me any favors. Also, what's the cost? Thanks.

It's a EURO part and is is not available through BMWNA. You may want to try ECS Tuning. I got it from a Euro buddy of mine. It was 100 EUR.

This is a euro only part. I buy most of my Euro parts through http://www.schmiedmann.com

This euro plate should set you back about $135 including taxes and shipping.

I doubt it but you could probably source them from a donor unit, if you could find one.

The last two buttons are not touch sensitive like the others, even after coding. At least mine aren't. Can anyone confirm that the Euro part buttons are touch sensitive after the retrofit?

Yes they are touch sensitive after being coded for it.
