check the fist page they sent me a link of how to install it and it explains how to pop it out, taking out the dash is easy putting the m3 dash in is hard lol =) Im guessing ur going to do an m3 swap?

I'm sorry to be redundent but I have not been able to definitively confirm this...

an e36 sedan dash will fit right into the ti assuming you've got the appropriate years...

I think 95 is when they went OBDII and air bags...

Every post includes a time stamp just above the username. How difficult is it to read that? :-)

So logistically this will work, question is will it be useful? Both the speedo and tach are calibrated differently between the TI and //M. The speedo and tach both have maximum values that are higher than the TI cluster. (TI Speedo goes to 140, //M speedo goes to 160)

Therefore if you use the TI guts with the //M face and needles, both the speedo and tach will read incorrectly.

Am I missing something?
