New cluster

Recommended Posts

Here's a picture of the "new" cluster for my M2. I thought it'd be a good idea to have updated gauges for the s14. I'm not sure how I want to finish the aluminum, I was thinking a satin finish like the heater control panels, any ideas? The "idiot" lights are from the original cluster and you can still read the letter. I think I still have the CAD file for this if anybody else is interested in making one; you do have to grind the top and bottom to make fit into the old gauge housing.

That's cool! I would love to build one with the same size Speedo and Tach. Then just a small Fuel Gauge. My install will include a black metal piece that will be in the center console. So, three gauges there would be Oil, Temp, Voltage.

I'm having trouble finding the CAD file. If I can locate it I'll repost. Sorry guys.

Please do if you can, I am using a new veneer pattern and wood love the CAD file to use a computer cutter to make it fit perfect. Thanks for looking, Hal

The fuel gauge is a VDO unit. I havent tried it with the sender yet so I got my fingers crossed. If it doesn't work, I'll figure something out, that's the least of my worries! The speedo is an electric unit, so I'm going to be putting a Hall effect sensor (I think that's what it's called) on the driveline somewhere. I like this way over mechanical as if you change tire size or diff ratio, its easier to adjust; and I'm using the 265 tranny. Also, I can use the sensor to attempt to get cruise control working!

This VDO fuel gauge is 0 - 90 ohm let me know if works, about the Hall effect sensor I found this guy who sell in case you need.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
