I have nothing but time, but I figured you might want what you have already paid for . Let me know.
Hey Paul sorry for the delay, been caught up with a bunch of exams. Was waiting to finish up before I sent it out. Going to send it out this week.

I can put white needles on that will show as whatever the LED color is if you desire.

Do you have any pics of the white needles with red led? I really wanted red needles, but didn't look like there was a way to have it done and look oem.

I also found this: http://onlineshop.wunschtacho.de/pro...httechnik.html

Any thoughts on that? Are the needles painted on the wrong side?

No worries, just wanted to check in.

I don't have any pics of the white needles with the red/orange LEDs, but look at any non-M5 e39 cluster and you'll see what they look like.

Those needles are painted like the e39 m5 ones are, with the paint on top, rather than bottom like e46s. I think it looks fine on e39 m5s, so you could probably go that route just fine.
