    What's involved in retrofitting a colour DIS to replace my red DIS

    I'd really like to upgrade my red DIS to a full colour one and finding conflicting info through google.

    Anyone here done it or know exactly what is required in terms of labour and parts?

    Thanks

    ah, but you forget, I'm the king of getting cheap bargains LOL
    Hoping if I can get a cluster for one of our local Audi scrappies, it's just a case of fitting, recoding keys maybe, and thats it?

    sure enough the parts are relativly cheap, its the removing the dash and recoding thats the issue.
    if you figure it out, please let me know

    its a simple swap as far as removeing dash
    then theres a few that will recode imm and keys
    shark does it
    but finding them second hand is kinda hard work

    A new cluster isn't £1K expensive... certainly less than £500

    From previous reading on this subject, there was something about the mileage. First you have to get the exact cluster for your car and I'm sure if the cluster has gone over 50,000 miles then it's locked.

    As far as I know Shark is the only one that can do a cluster change outside a dealer.
