Let's move on to the next step: Color DIS

I just saw a question on AudiWorld about the color DIS. Since retrofitting the RNS-E is no problem anymore and thanks to Proxus the XM question got answered too, the next logical step would be to get the color FIS. One reason is because the red FIS sometimes doesn't display street names properly. The other reason because it looks really nice.

On there are once in a while clusters with color FIS. But they are always with km/h instead of miles/h and they are in most cases missing the PIN to get it coded.

I tried to get an answer on the German boards but they always talk about replacing the whole cluster and recoding, but never about replacing only the little LCD in the middle.

Anybody here who played with this mod and tried to upgrade to the color DIS? Or is the only way to pay $700-800 and get a new one from a dealer?

yes i've tried it at the dealership and it won't work... so just save the money and forget about it
I'm not sure about the B5 cluster.

But all B6 clusters need to be brand new to be coded. once they are coded they will dedicate their life to that car.. it can be used on no other

same case with b7

so don't buy any B6 or B7 clusters with more than 100 miles as THE MILES WILL NOT CODE.
you won't find one used but with less than 100 miles.. they are extremely rare.. they cost 700-900 from the dealer depending if you have one to return (which you won't)

give me an email, i know a guy from an audi parts place from AZ who sells them for 500 (basically the cost price)

i'm looking to source one too, maybe he can give us a discount if we order 2

i think you should have my email :wink:
i'll ask him for 3 then

All B6A4's correct? 1.8T's right?

3.0 clusters are different due to the rev counter
alright no problem, all b6a4 1.8T's uses the same cluster regardless of transmission

i'll get back to you guys on pm or something
