    Has anybody done one? I have my rsn-e to go in and i'm just waiting on a double din cage.

    Was just wondering are they hard to come across even in km as i've done loads of mk4 clocks

    Are they worth it or should I just get a bluetooth unit for thr rsn-e??

    Im pretty sure its impossible to do. It would only be possible if the clocks you get to do it are under 1000 miles on the odometer, or something like this.

    I had looked into it a while back...

    I thought it was possible to do, but I have no idea. have a search here, the question has been asked many times, and i think you need the full clocks and not just the screen. As far as i know, S4's have the colour DIS, so maybe find a set of S4 clocks, which I'm sure will be a doddle! ha.

    Have a search though, it's definately been asked before.

    But I have a diesel so clocks will rev out different.

    I don't mind km in Ireland as we switched over her in Ireland from 2005. I got a nice set of mk5 highline clocks from Germany in the Summer for my womans Golf. In km too.

    I have done the colour dis retrofit. Well at least I sourced the parts and had Ben at Sharkperformance re-coded the new cluster. You have to make sure you source the correct petrol or diesel cluster and it is important that you get a B6 one if you have a B6 that is. The immobilisers are different between the B6 & B7. It does not matter if it is new or used Ben can re-code either. Ring him and have a chat if you are unsure, he does pop up on here sometimes as shark_90
