The BMW instrument cluster is bullshit and BMW Canada will tell you it is necessary to install when in fact it is not. The cluster on most BMW's comes with both MPH and KMH already on the cluster. A new instrument cluster is only required to pass federal safety if it has ONLY MPH. Don't listen to the bullshit when BMW tells you your required to spend the extra couple grand.

On a side note, I just bought a 2008 BMW 335i from a private seller in the US. Does anyone know of a person/dealership that would be willing to slide my way the documentation of the amazingly scammed recall letter? Maybe someone on this forum knows or works for BMW, I would be willing to give them some money. I would rather it go to a person on this forum then BMW.

Thanks guys.
