Now I've got a fully working cluster that seems to have programmed itself to the rest of the car automatically. I'll try programming with NCS a bit later but suspect I'll get the same error as above.

Currently loading files needed for winkfp to program the correct VIN and VO to the cluster. Once that's complete, a tweak in production date within NCS (cluster was mfg. 5 years after my original cluster lol) and I should be able to program all features. Will update 1st post with a step-by-step guide if I do get it programmable.

Now to open it up and get that nasty '335is' lettering faces and needles look cool though
I've been wanting to swap out my KOMBI (cluster) to a 335 one that has oil temp instead of instant MPG, who the heck cares about instant MPG? Very nice job!
