There's an exclamation point surrounded by a gear in the pictogram row that indicates that there is a fault in the transmission - it's used on the automatic M3 as well as on the SMG. I'm sure there's another indicator in the SMG LCD display (which replaces the oil temperature gauge on SMG-equipped M3s), but the exclamation mark surrounded by a gear is definitely "transmission failure".

Yes. 3.2L cluster with 3.0 gauges, essentially. I only chose to keep my US plastic front piece because it was the cleanest and had both my US stickers on it.

I'd rather not say how much it all cost me, but I'm going to be selling back my US cluster and the remaining bits of the Euro cluster (3.0L cluster with 3.2L gauges basically) and hopefully will only have spent a few hundred dollars at most.

I'm glad I did mine as well, the oil temp is FTW. The Euro 3.2L (UK-spec) runs in the area of $200-300, just search around on ebay.uk

*edit* it's funny you mention the pictograms, I knew they were different... but for us dumb "americans" they had to spell out warning lights (i.e. ABS, Brake Fluid, Park Brake) and the fuel amount 0 and 1/1 vs. R and F

Suspension next spring (or maybe at the end of this summer, we'll see how it goes) and power...a few years. I'm happy with the power right now.

The way I see it, I'm pretty much done with random Euro goodies (maybe I'll enable the rear fogs someday).

Suspension/bushings/etc.: spring 2010
Speaker upgrade (maybe a BSW stage 1 kit): summer 2010
Power (full engine overhaul, cams/intake/exhaust/etc.): summer 2011
6-speed with 3.64 diff: summer 2012

Enjoy the car for many years (hopefully).

Don't forget the fuel gauge doesn't say "unleaded fuel only" anymore

The Fahrenheit oil temp is nice if you have MPH on the speedo and Fahrenheit on the HVAC/OBC. I had thought about doing KMH & Celsius to keep with the Euro theme but was too lazy to memorize metric even though the Euro speedometer looks much cleaner.

Don't get an Alpina cluster though because it's all in Celsius! That really bugged me they didn't match after I went through the same PITA as you did...

Jeff your car is coming along nicely. Hopefully the E36 S54 swap will be completely unlocked with factory-like functionality by 2011!

That's true. I really hope I don't accidentally fill her up with leaded fuel!

Yeah - the Farenheit oil temperature was a necessity, and I had no desire to change my AC controls to Celsius and stuff like that.

No thanks on an Alpina cluster - I like this one a lot.

Thanks - your strut bar was a nice addition and I think along with the full OBC, the aim control, and the power vent windows, the car is just about exactly where I want it.

Rome, for 5 weeks or so.
