I've got a few various cluster parts for sale:

335is Silver Gauge Faces - $40 shipped

Perfect shape. Easy to swap.




335is Cluster Logic Board - $60 shipped

This is off a 335is convertible. When I plug it into my car, it wants to pull the roof down, fold the seats, and refuses to display rpm. Obviously needs some coding for correct operation. LEDs have been replaced with white ones, can be reverted back to stock amber for additional $10.





Logic Board Housing - $20 shipped

Housing from the logic board, including both rear black piece and front white piece, as shown. Perfect shape.




Needles - SOLD

CLUSTER SOLD

Very difficult to install without scratching up the inside of your glass. I HIGHLY recommend buying a second cluster to practice/install on as the front plastic glass/ring piece is interchangeable and that way you don't risk messing up your original cluster.

You sure enuf got that right

I have the Bimmian rings - they were a ROYAL PITA to install without scratching the inside of the lens when removing the old rings...

I learned how to do it (remove the old rings) my second time around. I ended up covering the entire inside surface of the glass in 2 layers of paper towel (carefully placing it so as not to drag it along the glass unnecessarily), then removing the old rings as following:

1) Use an exacto blade to cut off the 2 lower clips while rings were still inserted
2) unclip top 3 clips so rings are semi-free
3) bend rings until they break in 2 places, giving 2 "half rings"--top half and bottom half (top half easily comes out)
4) carefully thread the bottom half out, just following the circle around towards the top, after which they come out easily, checking to make sure paper towel is intact after each movement

When I was installing the new ones, I thought they would break before I'd get them into an oval to thread them through the openings, but they're actually more flexible than they first appear, and since the new rings only have 3 top clips (as opposed to the original 5), installing them isn't too bad, though still requires some force

Finally, use air from a compressor or can duster from all possible angles (esp. edges) until the inside of the glass/plastic is perfectly clean

That's basically what I ended up doing - when trimming off the tabs, I found they were still too long to allow what was left of the tabs to release fully from the slots before the ring would hit the plastic.

I broke up the rings into seperate sections to remove also

Never thought about the paper towel protection though...
