    s4 instrument cluster in a4

    fitted some s4 clocks i got of ebay to my 1.8tqs
    they had a new dis screen fitted so figured it would be cheaper than having mine fixed
    was never keen on the white dials, so now ive got light grey with white needles
    wasnt even sure if theyd work but no probs so far
    any comments welcome

    before


    after

    looks good!

    Lol at mileage being out though, miles to Km is a simple calculation man! miles * 1.6 = Km

    or use google calculator:

    alpine, legally cluster mileage should relate to shell/chassis not engine and adjusting would make car seem dodgy to anyone checking mot's etc

    raz, few more pics, its a garmin nuvi 200 cheap but quite impressive, guy on audizine worked out it was a perfect fit if you pull vent out
    also it logs max speed reached which got me a telling off from mrs

    cheers thats a neat and tidy fit is it secured in anyway to prevent theft? i suppose if they want something they will take it etc...

    also as i understand it seen the lead on fleebay for the vagtacho. is it just a matter of buying the lead loading the software, and entering the code from your old clock and entering the new code and hey presto?? sounds too easy to be this simple?

    thanks

    its a push in fit so i dont leave it in overnight, its pin protected but rather not have my window smashed for theivin gits to find that out

    vagtacho lead plugs in via obd and then you select type of instruments (vdo old for our cars) if it can connect! its press a button for the function you want, read skc, change mileage etc
    if adding a new cluster you fit new one then read skc, then switch to vagcom lead to match ecu/keys using skc you just read

    i replaced cluster in my tdi for a brand new one (ebay, old dealer stock) and i had to drive it round the block before it would let me change mileage as it wouldnt connect to clocks with zero miles on it?
