    Hi,
    I have a 2013 A6 2.0 TDI manual.
    Does anybody know if I can upgrade my monochrome display cluster with a colour display cluster from an automatic?

    Thanks

    You can but you will need to buy a new cluster and then find someone who can do the mileage correction. You will also need a trip to the main dealer to remove CP.

    I found an old thread which was pretty informative as I’m currently doing the same thing myself on a newer car.
    Have the cluster but somehow managed to order 250mm of optic cable which is way short, so waiting on a longer one before starting.

    k3vkr is your instrument cluster from an A6 with the same transmission as your car?
    I'm wondering if a cluster from an automatic would work on a manual.

    Is the fiber optic cable to allow the maps to be displayed in the cluster?

    From what I read you copy and paste the original code so I thought that would deal with transmission issues?
    Also, yes, optic cable is for maps.

    Thanks k3vkr

    Did you get the maps working in your cluster display? Is it just a case of connecting a fiber optic cable from the display screen to the cluster?

    Still not got the cable, so probably wont start this til the new year now.
    I do have the maps on my monochrome display already (turn signs etc) but not sure if that works by optic cable and thus would just need swapped and coded.
    Also trying to find someone to deal with component protection and pondering warranty issues now before i start....:whistle2:
