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 went to the dealer today to talk me out of this. He did a pretty good job when he said the cluster would be $800 (already including a small discount and tax and the core charge for the missing return part) and 1 hour (another $160) would be sufficient to get it installed. I thanked him for the quote and drove back thinking that the red cluster is not that bad at all. Does anybody know if Clairparts sells clusters?
Whoa... Close to $1,000 USD just to get another cluster that's insane. Not for what it costs (considering what it does and how integal it is to the vehicle's operation) but as to why ne1 would pay it.

I think that the new LCD screen in the B7 looks alot better than the one in the B6's but not at that price.
$660.00 + $200.00 + maybe an hour at the dealership, I'm thinking that upgrade cost you close to $1,000.00 (with tax)

U my friend have money to burn..
True dat
