Arrow 6WB Multifunctional Instrument Panel Retrofit

Hi everyone,

I am very happy to show you the latest upgrade we did for one of our customers a few days ago.
We retrofitted the Multifunctional Instrument Panel in an F13 built when this cluster was not yet available.
Thank you Hung for choosing BimmerTech!

This retrofit can be done in the following models: F01, F02, F06, F07, F10, F11, F12, F13.

I think it looks just great!!! How do you guys like it?

Freakin Awesome!

Can this be done on U.S. Spec'd cars, and do you need to have 6WA to convert to 6WB, or can you convert from the regular KOMBI (non HUD instrument cluster in the U.S.)?

Yes, it can be done on both Euro and US spec cars as well as those with or without 6WA/HUD.

What if you car currently does not have Eco PRO or Sport+ Modes? Will those displays just not appear?

BimmerTech.... Nice job and good luck with the sales.

All.... Their web site show just over $2K for the unit and fees. I am not sure what it would take to install this, if coding is required and if the odometer would need to be changed to match your miles or is the car would automatically do it for you. And, if your car is under warranty how would BMWNA treat this mod?

IMHO, that is a fair price for a mod like this if you want it. Just some additional questions need to be answered.

Very nice. I'm sure the '14 F10 LCI in the U.S will offer this, as the '13 F01 LCI got it. This is a great alternative for those who are not trading up next summer.

i had the same questions so this is what patryk wrote to me:
* it is a 5 min job to change the units
* it would need some coding that patryk could do remotely
* the mileage will be identical to the your original unit
* you can swap units and the units will always show the correct mileage
* you need to swap the units before you go to your dealer for a service that requires a software update

hope i provided the right info here.

I doubt this would work in an M5. But I would be willing to try...
