    No that's in a Golf cluster. This is an 08 S3 cluster doing its sweep.

    It's available on S3 clusters, not sure about yours though. To enable it try looking in the DIS Menu > Set > Indications > Dials (tick/untick).

    cheers, had wondered - there are quite a few surface mounted LED's needing changed to get that effect! I see there is a guy on german ebay that does various switches in blue.

    oooo that looks nice!

    those leds with the needle sweep at the beginning would be awesome!



    As for the whole cluster change, the instructions you gave seem complicated but saying that you are changing from the older 8P... would it be just a plug and play swap with some extra coding on a 55plate A3?

    For 11/04 & onwards cars, subject to checking of course, it should really be just as simple as get the new cluster & take to audi to be swapped coded to the car, cause you should have the new wire already & also the newer pump, again you can check this by looking up the pump part for your vin & also remove the cluster to see if that pin is wired already, simple way to see if the wire on pin 25 is functional, just remove the pin from the 32 connector & reinsert cluster to car & start car & the fuel level shouldnt show, according to my test anyway on newer cluster.
    Ahh now i see... i read the first paragraph and my brain just gave up

    Diesel, but tbh whats your rev counter go upto at the moment, if its same as my original post with images then I hazard a guess it would work with some petrol cars, only one way to find out & your choice not mine.

    oooh, forums up again!

    I looked at 2008 clocks on ebay too but I was also concerned that the speedo might be out too over and above the need for mileage & immob needing addressed.

    J does show as a 160mph diesel from mid 09 so I cant atm see why not & yours has the extra fuel sender wire so should just need fitting, based on I havnt looked at a my10 wiring so much but think its the same.

    I know an Audi master technician who does cluster swaps etc for Golfs, he did my old car for me and he is very knowledgeable when it comes to this stuff. I have sent him a PM about mileage correction for you. He should know whats what. He just plays with clusters to see what mods can be done.

    I know it possible to change mileage and pull the SKC on the pre-09 clusters by means other than Audi. I'm not sure if these companies can do the 09 on yet though one in Glasgow said to NHN that they could.

    Thanks to your keen eye, I have my very own facelift one .

    Out of interest, do you know what they would take to do immob compared to Audi?

    Was saying to N on Friday, I was suprised that all the extra DIS functions worked without needing to change my rev A network controller etc.
