M - Style Red Needles from Bimmian
Have you always wanted the look of M3 gauges in your non-M car? Bimmian Automotive Inc makes it both possible and easy-to-do with our M-Style Red Needle Kit! Stop wasting your time with messy needle paint and get the kind of results you really want with this awesome needle upgrade for the E90, E91 and E92.
Features and Benefits Of This Product
This kit allows you to change out your current, non-M needles and replace them with needles in the same style as you would find on the E90/92 M3.
Enjoy the new look of these racing inspired needles with a gloss black center and red stems, capped with a black line painted across the top just like the ones you would find in an M3.
What Its Made From
Each needle consists of a black plastic center with a clear plastic stem and needle that channels the dash lighting and illuminates it. The underside of the needle is painted red, creating a rich glow. An additional black accent line runs up the front, stopping midway up the length of the needle adding contrast to the overall look of each M-Style Needle.
What's Inside The Box
Each kit comes with 4 M-style red needles (2 large and 2 small needles).
Installation of this product will require you to remove the gauge cluster from the vehicle and open it. Naturally, some may feel a bit apprehensive when it comes to removal and installation of these needles. While the gauges can be a bit delicate, if you do it the right way you should have no problems. Let's go through the procedure so you can see that it can be quite straightforward.
If you would would like to see a thorough needle installation video, it is available below. Further installation documentation is available via the "Installation Guides" tab.
1. Once you have the gauge cluster removed, apply a strip of masking tape adjacent to the existing needles and mark their position on the tape. This step is imperative to ensure that your gauges remain properly calibrated.
2. Get a small piece of paper and cut a slot down the middle of it to allow you to slide it behind the needle. The slot you cut out will accommodate the needle stem. The paper is used as a precautionary measure to protect the gauge face.
3. Slide a dinner fork between the needle base and the paper, the needle stem should be between the tines of the fork.
4. Gently pry up. The needle will come off of the stem with some pressure.
5. Place the new needle(s) on the stem, but don't push down just yet. Ensure that you align the needle(s) with the alignment reference marks you made earlier on the masking tape.
6. When the alignment is correct, push the needle down on the stem to lock it in place.
NOTE: These needles are intended for a single installation only, so when installing the new needles, alignment is crucial. Please ensure that the alignment is correct before pushing them down on the stem.
