I have a 1997 528i (production 9/96) with what may be called the ‘low’ instrument cluster. This is the one with the five sections across the bottom. Apparently, the ‘high’ cluster has the alpha display, which I like.
1) Can I confidently change to the alpha display and have all the wiring match up?
2) Will all OBC functions work properly?
3) What happens with the toy indicator (that little display of the car that shows the various problems like doors open, headlights not working, etc?
I have a 1989 525i with the alpha display and I like it a lot better.
Any assistance is welcome.
