Default Gauge Cluster Rings...

Have to repair the dreaded dark spots in my cluster and was considering installing a set of cluster rings while I am at it...

Anyone else install these and have feedback? I see in past reviews that even the snap in ones had fitment issues but was wondering if any improvements have been made since the

Default Re: Gauge Cluster Rings...

I installed a set of Bimman ones back in 2007. They were on of the few back then with the proper OEM '3d' rings, like the OEM Z3 rings, instead of the flat glued on ones.

They are still in my 328i today and fit perfectly.

In my M3 I decided to keep the factory non-ring look.

The chrome rings do ad a nice depth to the clusters, specially at night as the light/numbers reflect in them.

The 323Ti had a nice dark grey fashplate, with matt black rings. If anything, that would look nice in the M3, but since the symbols don't match (which can me modded) but again, I wanted to keep my M3 cluster factory.

Get the Z3 cluster face if you want the rings (they are OE BMW), otherwise just leave it stock.
