Thank you Buckeye. Luckily Bartek has new instructions for the F3X/F8X install. You have to take the entire cluster apart in the back (2 circuit boards). Then the silver rings have to come off....clips are in the back. Yes the overlays just drop in with out adhesive, even the small gauge overlays.

I did write in the custom order, but they ignored it and sent two sets of red MPH gauges. Then I got there correct color resent (gray and black) with the ///M logo, etc. Website is still not updated 3/2021.

Will try the install in a week or two...mods are backed up.

Thanks for the quick reply,

Cheers

Ordered some M4 CS OLED-style tail lights for the car. Don't have them yet, but they are similar in style to the second set of lights in the linked video below. I was sent a video of the welcome sequence, sequential turn signal, brake light, and reverse light in action by the manufacturer and, fingers crossed, everything looks flawless so far. Will definitely post pics once I have them and put them on the car

Got my M4 GTS style OLED taillights on! They turned out amazing, the fitment is good, and the sequential turn signal and startup sequence are a really nice touch. Overall I'm super happy with these

Car looks awesome! Any reason you didn't go for the fully digital cluster that Kies Motorsports offers?

Thanks so much! There were a couple reasons. First, I wanted the gauge faces to be blue. It matches the other accents in the interior (e.g. shift paddles and start/stop button), and it is reminiscent of the Alpina gauge clusters, which I personally love the look of. Second, the 6WB with coding is big money, and the price is kind of hard to justify for a gauge cluster. I would rather spend the money on other parts. That said, if the price ever drops on them or there's a sale on them, I would highly consider the 6WB as the digital clusters are very nice.

Updated the iDrive firmware to ID6, and had Apple CarPlay installed as well after the flash. The ID6 firmware update really modernized the iDrive well, and CarPlay is an absolute blessing while driving. Overall I'm really happy with this upgrade, definitely made a substantial improvement to daily driving- bigger than I thought it would.
