I have been thinking about doing this but I finally had some time to work on these. I am actually still working on some custom gauge designs but I have a lot of gauge face ideas in my mind. For those who wouldn't wanna send out their cluster for LED color change, they might just wanna buy a custom gauge face. I will update this post as I am working on these cluster designs. The one below is not done yet but is close to be.

Thanks Guys! I will be done with some designs very soon. I will update this post as soon as they are ready. I am also open to ideas.. I’m trying my best for designs but still some people might not like them. So tell me if there is something that you don’t like :)

I like doubles suggestion

Years ago a swapped to an M3 style white led cluster /needles / rings etc. and it makes for a bigger difference than I would have thought for whatever that's worth. If someone is looking to give their interior a slightly more modern look I'd suggest it. Don't change the center Led that shows Info from BC stalk. Looks like some tacky aftermarket ish when that's swapped.

Let us know if you can have custom logos done on a gauge cover set

what about just '335i' for example, kind of how they do the 335is

I have been looking for the font that BMW uses for Exx car badges. I couldn’t find it and I tried it with different fonts. I will try to get the logo out of a photo soon but it will be a PITA to process that :)

I tried not changing the LEDs behind the info screen but orange looked really weird in between all that white color. Yes. I am working on making custom gauge faces these days and hopefully release them soon.

Well, creating a font may be a pain in the ass, not sure what it would take to yank it out of a simple photo like this:

That's not hard to get it outta from a photo.. Important thing here is the resolution. If I can find a high resolution one or If I can just get a 335is gauge face from somewhere, I guess that would work much better since there won't be any resolution issues.

Did you try these?

Yes sir. I have tried these and they looked kinda funny to me. I will find a way to use 335is logo somehow..

For the Tach needle, keep it white, or make it an option. The white stands out more and I feel the Tach is a more important gauge than speed when racing. At least for those with manuals.

Red font fits the car best

I definitely agree but there are people out there will wanna see it white I am sure. I really didn't like how it looks with white "335i" text. I have attached an example with white text below..

Yes sir. I will make that as an option as well. White or red needles both will be available.

white font looks better. Probably a age varied thing, some people like VTA wastegates, some people like white font compared to red.

I like the lighter font better, but perhaps the square dot over the i

Yeah that dot fucking killed me man! It comes like that with the font that I found (It was really nightmare to search for the closest font to match as much as possible).. I tried to make it square but couldn't align it well and when I posted these, I was still working and I still am working to get the right look. I'm just a detail guy like you :) It has to look perfect to the eye because people will look at it everyday :))

Hahah! I agree! Definitely! That's why I will be offering different colors. I will probably get weird\different color requests but we will see:)

Some people are influenced by the look of things simply because they are custom or different. At age 32, I'm liking my stuff more and more factory fit/appearance. There is a little ricer/showoff in me still, as I want to rock raw CF hood and trunk still :).
