    mine expires 2019. Current COE is SGD $70k ++ , makes no sense to renew anymore.
    E39 was in production in 96-03. This means that 2006-2009 E39s were in a gd position to renew. COE went sky hard starting from 2009, which means all the LCI E39s are sent to the scrapyard after 10 years.... very sad.... :(

    Okay just done all of them.

    Total 4 cluster repaired, 98-100% pixel success. Given more time would probably get more success.

    Maybe need another session for harbhajan, mtigo and fariz. Maybe need appointment one by one to save you waiting.

    Just got home.


    After giving it some thought, I think DIY sessions does not really work. Due to the delicacy of the work required to achieve the perfect result, this is really not a normal DIY, need somebody who knows what they are doing. In the end I had to do all the clusters today, although bro AsusEpoxy, Sewell, nitedevil and jaar does help with some bits.

    A word of warning: DO NOT let your mechanic who normally deals with your engine do this work if they have never done this before. We had quite a shocking experience with the work done to bro Jaar's cluster by his mechanic. Lucky that we were able to salvage whats left of it with 98% pixel success.

    After doing 4 clusters today, I think I'm confident to do the next ones with 99-100% success rate. Time taken should also be less (roughly 1 and a half hour each or less) since I remembered now what I'm doing. Its been more than 2 years since i did mine.
