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?

I managed to pick up a colour screen a few weeks ago, and yesterday I managed to get the time to have a bash at fitting it. Unfortunately it was a waste of my day, as the connections on the cluster for each screen are different.

Red screen connector (single ribbon, still connected to cluster):

Colour screen connector (ribbon + power presumably):

So I guess the only way of doing this is actually to change the cluster. Such a shame.

The next question is... which parts of the cluster control the immobiliser? And do you think they can be transplanted to another cluster :twisted:
