    BMW 3 series (E36), 5 series (E34, E39), 7 series (E38), 8 series (E31), X5 from 1988-2003 all have the common dead / fading / disappearing pixels on the instrument cluster (also on the board computer) - on the large LCD display that shows valuable data such as the mileage and the on board computer messages. The pixel problem lies with the ribbon cable that connects the LCD display to the circuit board of the instrument cluster. You can save some bucks if you replace the ribbon instead of the whole cluster/MID.Read more from here: http://pixelfix.net/eng/index.html[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]Here is the list of pricing. BMW E38/E39/E53/E32/E34 instrument cluster chrome ring : RM135.00BMW E38/E39/E53/E34 instrument cluster ribbon : RM95.00BMW E38/E39/E53/E31/E36 multi information display MID ribbon : RM90.00BMW E38/E39/E53/E31/E36 instrument cluster/MID bulb : RM45.00 for 3 bulbsThe ribbon and ring price may higher than what u can get in other sources from China, but this is quality product which made from Europe. Price is included the freight cost from vendor and only valid if more than 10 items purchase in total.The group buy end on 25 Jan 12pm.Pls list down your name, model and item that you are looking.Example: bmw7833/e39/cluster ribbon + cluster ring + cluster bulb*5 + MID ribbon01.02.03.04.05.06.07.08.09.10. ________________________________________________________________________________________Update 1:We need total 5 bulbs in one instrument cluster. Pls state how many bulbs you need. The price RM45 is for 3 bulbs, can consider RM15 per bulb. I will get the extra bulbs if you want 5 bulbs so u pay extra RM30 to me.[​IMG]________________________________________________________________________________________Update 2:Take note all, there are 2 type of speedometer for e39, pls refer to the picture below.According to the vendor, the low base speedometer will never fail and they do not have ribbon for this type of speedometer. For e39, the ribbon only fits the high base speedometer.[​IMG]Low base speedometer [​IMG]High base speedometer________________________________________________________________________________________Update 3:Since someone is asking me about how the ring look like after apply to the cluster, here is the picture from vendor.Click for bigger picture: http://www.pixelfix.net/chrome_karika_facelift2.pnghttp://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn320/evicevenevo/BMW/chrome_karika_facelift2.png

    Bro, if u replace 3 bulbs only, do u think the illumination light will become not balance after that since 2 bulbs are still the old one?

    Bro, the bulbs just for spare/emergency, all my bulbs are OK. If there's no/low demand for these bulbs, I can pass.
    Cluster & MID ribbon is also for standby, only a few pixels in cluster and some pixels in MID are gone so far. I have another total-pixel-loss MID at home (ori with car), maybe can use this GB to fix that one though.
    Cluster ring so far for standby, until cluster ribbon needs to be replaced, then will request installation together.

    Cheers.

    Would love to buy the ribbons but the work to be done is painstaking. Further, I am all thumbs and doubt I can do it DIY. Anyone we can send to for this job?. If there is, then I am cool on the GB for the ribbons.
