Justin and Duane, Do all of the gauge faces come with the light ring in the "middle" of the gauge or do I need to contact them for that? Just wondering because you both have it on yours, but his renders don't show them and Pennut's doesn't seem to have it either.

Those gauge faces are going to look funny on a BMW...

Anybody else's gauges do this?:

When I open my door or put my key in the ignition, my gauge needles will jump up a bit from the rest position. Then when I start my car they go to the position they should be at.

Then when I shut off the engine. Take the key out of the ignition, the gauges do the reverse, but not until the dome light times out and shuts off. Then the needles drop down to what I call a rest position.

You will see what I mean (that is if yours do the same thing) if you sit in the car (shut the door) and put your key in the ignition (don't start the car), the needles should move a bit. Then turn the key to the ACC and the needles should move to where they should be. Then take the key out of the ignition. Open the door. Close the door. Wait until about 30 secs after the dome light shuts off. Do the gauge needles drop down after that to what I call a "rest position"? Just wondering if it's some quirk of my gauges only?

Mine do the same thing. I believe it is SOP and nothing to be concerned with.

But once I start to turn on my car. The rpm's are already at 1,000 and I'm just sitting in my driveway, my mph is 4 miles faster then I am actually going my gas gauge is completely messed up. And so is my tempt gauge anyone have any tips on how to get it back to normal !??

Are the red ST needles interchangeable with the non-ST? If so would the installation require recalibration of the gauage needles? Im not a huge fan of the baby blue needles I have now.
