Spoken to Bellman auto electrics and they will do a needle and led swap for £60.
About the price of just the needles from other places without installation.
They will not just supply needles though.
As they are based in Sheffield, it is a no from me :(

Thats a shame. They do a postal service if you happen to find a donor cluster

I wish I’d not found that page. Or to be precise I wish I’d not shown it to the Mrs who now wants the cluster doing

If you send them a cluster, they’d need your old one as well to swap coding for immobiliser etc so wouldn’t help unless upgrading.
Does she want the funky multicoloured one?

Yeah although I’m not sure on the full blown rainbow effect. :D

Of everything she has now chosen teKKo seat covers from seat surgeons and the rainbow cluster. I managed to get some wheels cheap which negates the need to get the ones she chose
Also nagging me to get it lowered although I’m quite liking the ride height now

I might just suggest she gets her own caddy 😂

:lol:
Good she takes an interest.
My lovely lady reads the forum too, not sure if it’s just to check up on me :oops:
A few of the mods on my list or already done are her choice (heater upgrade, ptc heater, heated seats. Hmm I see a theme)

You’re not hanging about with this build mate.
I’m pretty sure you once said you were just going to do ‘one or two’ mods. We all said that!
