EuroCustomsPr Cluster Overlays

Hey guys,
Bought a set of yellow cluster overlays from EuroCustomsPr.
Don't know if I'm just being fussy, but the print seems kind of unfinished, a little bit rough on the edges, the Zero's and Two's seem to be slightly thicker, and the font color is more grey than black.
Anyone else experience the same?

I strongly recommend getting actual gauge faces from Venoxy.com as you peel and remove your stock face panel for a proper OE quality one. They are not stickers that you slap on top of your OE faces (like Eurocustoms lol). They are proper OEM material and thickness, with blotting ink on the backside so it lights up 100% stock. The font consistency, spacing, typeface is 100% OEM. I am incredibly OCD about details such as this, especially when modifying the M. I was legitimately impressed and did not expect this level of quality especially at less than what crappy sticker overlays cost.

I bought a set of grey ones for my 328i and red for the M3 (haven't installed these yet). Absolutely perfect quality and he can even make the "///M" backlit.

Main reason why I don't like to upgrade the cluster overlays because most people don't print them on very high-end printers...
The ones 6ixspeed posted look pretty good though!

I wish I saw That other site before.

I ordered from Eurocustomspr and the custom service is shit. They don’t get back to you and unless you are Instagram famous and they can use you for the promotional purpose.

Quote me on this because i don’t care honestly.

Yeah I was intrigued by the EuroCustoms products at first because I was looking for a Metric OEM E90 gauge face with oil temp instead of instant fuel consumption for a 328i. This configuration only exists in the E92 coupes and it's hard to find, nor did I want to pay hundreds of $ for a used E92 328i cluster...

Anyways, I found a listing in Poland on eBay for metric E90 gauge faces and reached out to the seller if he had one for a 328 instead of the commonly found 335i version. Turns out he (venoxy.com) has an E92 M3 himself and can make whatever faces you desire, everything from OE type to F8X type, to whatever. And boom, there we have it.

We bounced multiple emails back and forth for adjusting the 8250 cut on the stock M3 face to 8400, and then programming the adjustable redline accordingly. I'll keep you guys posted with what we come with. I can tinker with the stepper motor programming for the moving redline, but it's rest position sits at a point where the maximal red portion lines up with 8300-ish on the gauge face after you cut the face down to 8400. But he's working on a replacement for the adjustable redline to move the red down further to line up to 8400, that way it'll be 100% OEM looking as it should've been from the factory.

I think he can do customs but you need to have a few people in to do it

I'm pretty sure Venoxy can do that. Contact them via email.

Seems quite overpriced given that Venoxy can get you both speedo and tach faces for less than that lol.

I bought a set of EuroCustomsPr overlays. I'm not super happy with them. First of all they are overpriced for what you get and second, the print quality on it is not that great. For the price I expected much better. Mine was not super sharp--The numbers were actually a little blurry is how i can explain it best.

I installed them like the video on youtube using some soapy water and a small squeegee. Heated it up with a blow drier and all seemed well for 3-4 days and i reinstalled them back into the car. After about a week later during the the first very warm day, the whole thing started to bubble! Really tiny bubbles like it has the measles however, I assume it's my fault and I did something wrong during install? No clue what I did so I ripped them out and not doing that again..

Contacted them about it..they could not offer anything useful. They said it was probably the soapy water i used and that's about it.. never heard from them again .. thanks for the $110 for 2 blurry stickers sucker.

how is the install/removing needle part. The other crap ones are overlays so you just stretch it around the center of the needle lol

6ixSpd I am also curious about the install process. Was it difficult to remove the needle and replace the faces? 1-10 scale how difficult was it to install? Any reference videos or instructions you can share?

https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1604544 I posted this on E90Post when I modified my 328's cluster with the grey faces (and then some), but it's largely applicable.
https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1044425 This also helps with the initial removal/disassembly.

You can gauge your difficulty from there (pun intended), everyone's comfort level in their DIY skills varies.

Thanks for the recomendation 6ixSpd! One of my favorite interior mods when I had my e46. Like how he can custom make the faces. Went ahead and ordered. Will report when it arrives.

regarding the needles, can't you just place them back at zero before starting the car or are internal pieces moving around?
