New gauges from VENOXY N54 335i

Hi,
Yes, there are some other threads about new gauges but I just installed mine from Venoxy and wanted to share my experience.

I also got some new red needle/pointer stickers from ebay. As I went from 260kmh scale to 280kmh max I had to also adjust the speedometer.

What I like
-character set of numbers looks nice and the design looks great and modern
-good material and quality. easy to install after removing the existing gauges
-335i number looks great and personalize the look

What I don't like
-the white color of numbers which is translucent, is not really white, it looks hazy or shaded.
-the black is not mate as the OEM style but a little bit shiny which makes them look greyish and not black.
-the N54 logo on it's own looks great but in combination with the speedometer numbers a little bit squashed. I would probably remove it if I could. But as said logo alone looks great. Maybe it should be just smaller.

Would I do it again? Probably yes, but a true white color would improve the results.

What do you guys think?

I like the tacho, not so much the speedo. It's a little too busy and the N54 logo should shift to the left a bit...if not removed all together.

Yeah. That's exactly what I am thinking too.
Worth mentioning that you can decide on the logos when you order at VENOXY. If I order another one for my next car I will remove the N54/N55 logo.
