Selling only as a set of two dials - speedometer and tachometer. It is up to you if you want to replace tachometer only and keep OEM speedometer dial.
The matte paint finish is slightly different, therefore I prefer to sell two dials as a set.

I am offering two versions - US spec and Euro spec.

At the moment I have at home limited number of dials (less then 10 of each set) and it looks that new batch might be possible sometime in January next year.

I have good news, I spoke with the printing company and they will be able to make new batch of dials. That means that I can reduce the initial price to $229 shipped for either US or Euro set.


DIY how to replace dials is available.

You can also send me your cluster and I can replace the dials for you. Send me PM if you need such service.

If some need entire M3 cluster, please send me PM.

Yes, install is easy. In short you need to remove cluster from the car, remove 4 torx screws that keep in place cluster housing cover. After removing cluster cover, you should remove red needles.
Now you are ready to remove OEM dial and glue new one.

Hint - you should use hairdryer to warm up OEM dials. It will be much easier to remove them.

Is it possible to purchase these with a different tachometer layout (one that reads to 10,000 RPM) and/or one with a higher red-line?

Please let me know!

Yes, I it is possible but I used silkscreen technique to print these dials. That means that it should be completely new project , starting from design to printing. If you want only one set it might be expensive but at least I know who can do it right.

I would appreciate that. If you could get me pricing on the following:

1) New tach dial that reads to 10,000 RPM with a 9000 RPM redline.

-OR-

2) Same as OEM scaled tach dial, but redline at somewhere around 8800 to 9000 RPM.

Thank you very much!

Just installed my set and love them. It's a very subtle mod that gives great visual impact. The dial quality is superb. More importantly, Mariusz is a stand up guy. USPS claimed they delivered the dials, but I never received them. He overnighted new dials to me, no questions asked. I also had a million questions before I bought the dials, and a million more during installation. He was always patient and helpful with his responses

It's a pretty cool mod. Honestly on a scale of difficulty, is it worth the time and money to do this mod? If it's super easy and not time consuming, I think I woukd do it.

It's easy, doesn't take long. He includes a detailed DIY.Only you can determine if it's worth the money.

If you use the second option couldn't you just have no redline on the dial. You know where it is and the car does right.

It will be cool if you do a batch with red base color, just like the Porsche ones.

the dials are made using serigraph printing method, therefore printing only few dials will be expensive. Of course they can be done in different colors but in that case it should be rather "group buy" order.

I'd be in, but would it be possible to swap the "///M" and "1/min x 1000" so that the "///M" is on bottom as it is on the OEM gauge face?

Yes, that is possible but at the moment I have 5 dials left at home. More to come at the end of January, I hope.

Yes, you can buy used Euro spec cluster and just swap the dials or if you importing your US car to Europe you can order set of Euro spec dials. There is no need to buy separate cluster, program it....

Unfortunately, it is not possible due to design of transparent plastic dial. I have already printed the OEM look dial and then you will be able to see a line across ///M logo. Therefore I had to rise ///M letter and swap it with "1/min x1000"
