Aesthetically, Its really not my thing at all. The white gauge faces are ok, but the M, the 135i logo and the blue lights I really don't care for.

I've heard that a few times. The 135i didn't turn out like I was hoping. Need to get the font right. I line the M though. Figured since I had it apart I would make it mine. I was hoping to cut the 135i into the gauge and keep the black background under it but that wouldn't have worked for me. I also originally planned on it being bigger. I think one of the 3 series has this as the speedo. It says 335i across it. But the little letter that says x1000 is moved down a lot. So I had a better looking idea, but as usual my limited resources make it end up looking different than I had pictured. But I'm still happy with it. Glad you recognized the hard work though. If I ever get the right LEDs for the radio it will be really awesome to me. I know most would say riced out. But I like unique since it's not something you can really buy at Walmart and glue to the car and I don't see anyone else with it.

I'm going to start on the radio in the next couple of days! And i'll post pictures once everything is done!

Soldering went well, a little tricky as you know haha but it went well. As I progressed I definitely got a lot better!
Did you ever get the radio done? Wondering what you used for the tiny LEDs. Here is a pic of one that I took when I had it apart.

I did some of the other lights tonight. The trunk button, the headlight switch and both window controls. Here's a couple pics. They look a lot whiter in the pics than in real life. All of the blue matches color when your in the car but look different in the pics. I tried to get the overhead SOS and sunroof controls out but couldn't get it. Gonna have to do some more research on how to get that thing out.

One more. And can anyone tell me a number for the one led that is standing up on its end in the picture and the tiny ones in the other picture? If anyone happens to know those that would be freaking sweet.
