Last time I heard, nothing from the accessories catalogue would be available until March. Given that their spares are taking up 3 months to arrive (I've been waiting for a seat since last November), I'd add another couple of months to that to be on the safe side..

Plenty of time to save up then..;)

That looks really good. It fills the otherwise useless gap under the toggle switches. If the price isn't prohibitive i would consider getting them fitted. If anyione ever finds out a price, could they post it. Thanks.

Anyone know more about prices for these?? I assume they will be available when the S comes out... :confused:
:confused: too. That brochure shows a 5 speed box. so presumably gauges would be available across the range.

Isn't the gear shifter different for the steptronic. What's that about then, or am I dreaming once again ?

I quite fancied getting these guages also when I saw them in the accesories brochure, however the things that sprung immediately to mind are that they don't match the other dials, in terms of facia and needles, along with the fact that the gap where they fit is actually quite large so they may be a bit intrusive.

I'd love to have them myself, but I'm just not sure....

The colour is a good point. Maybe BMW thought them less obtrusive in black. Bet they add to the ambience at night though.......FANTASTIC.....got to get those gauges. I can hear BMW's cash register from here.......

picture gone???

Basil,

the picture didn't go anywhere, I can see it just fine...

PS when I saw the brochure, this was the only MUST HAVE, however, the colour point is a good one, makes me rethink a little, also, since the place they put them has a large hole behind it I wonder what they'll do about the wireing...

I agree - the guage colors should match the tach/speedo!

I had another close look at the Dutch brochure yesterday, in there it is stated that the look of the gauges are made to match that of the airblowers in the dash. They sort of do... mmm nice, very nice.
The brochure doesn't mention any prices or when these options come available.
If you haven't seen the full brochure yet, one of our members has scanned it in, here is a link: http://www.dave.mcrae.btinternet.co.uk/index.htm
(thanks Dave, hope you don't mind...)
