What is required to install a used instrument cluster with a color display?

From what I have read so far, I only need one with under 50k miles and take it along with my car to the dealer so they can install it and code it to my car.
Will they be able to adjust the mileage to match mine?
Can they(car and cluster) be taken to anyone with a 5051/5052 to program them or is it a dealer only job?
I also read something about a secret code and a separate PIN, is this true?

Thanks for any info on the subject.

As long as the cluster shows less than 100km the dealer can adjust the milage to match yours. Everybody with a 505x and an online connection to Audi in Ingolstadt/Germany can code the new cluster but in most cases this will be a dealer. VAG-COM can't do this on the B6/B7 and A3 anymore (any model with immobilizer III and newer). I'm not 100% sure about the SKC but based on what I read so far you don't need the SKC anymore if you do the online coding. Only if you generate a new key offline you will need the old SKC of the new cluster.

Thanks for the info. I will keep trying to find someone who can flash the used cluster so I can have it installed.
