coding is obviously required.
Im not worried about over-reving the engine. I know it redlines at 7k no matter if u had no gauge cluster. Im interested in maintaining a proper look. If ur car redlines at 7k and u have a cluster that reads to 8k, I dont think its clean.

The M3 cluster reads to 8K rpm.

The 335i stock cluster reads only to 7k rpm.

The X5M cluster reads to 7k rpm.

Anyone in california able to code something like this and change the pins? I think I can find an M5 cluster at a junkyard hook-up.

Thanks for the help guys
