Ordered from a Taiwan company, cost me about USD90?
It is a display which comes with 2 sensors and connecting wire for oil and water temp, it also has a fan control option but I didn't bother with it.

Very nice mod! Did you use the sensors which where included with the display? (if so, that means it's not plug and play right?)
Yes the display comes with 2 x sensor, but sadly nothing is plug and play though, you have to find a location for the sensor.
Since I am using a 335i oem oil cooler for my car, pluging the oil temp sensor is easy.

Me too! After owning that brown leather, couldn't think of any other interior colour!

It took 3 days of work to do everything, but it's completely worth it.

No. :shock:

To get the the lights on and working I needed the bulb holder for the newer light as they used different bulb holders and the reverse light, the other bulbs I swapped from the old bulb holder.

Then modifying the plug a little

Take out boot lining... etc etc

Spent the morning wrapping bits in suede, and loving the result.

How did you do it? Changed the leather or painted? Do you have pictures of the whole process of change?
