Spot on my friend.Then it has to be to update the blue background on the LED dash....
if it is the same as the r33 cluster then you are correct.That's should be a darn sight easier on an R34. If I'm not mistaken once you have the cluster out you can simply swap out the bulbs for led ones. The R35 required de soldering the smds off the board itself.
All in all it wasn't too bad but each stage was tricky for it's own reasons.That looks great. De-soldering, small tricky job?? or complete PITA
Yes did it myself. Took an hour to remove the cluster and get the speedo apart, then I gave myself a few hours each night to do the SMDs, then another 90 mins to put it all back in the car (I had to remove more trim to get the bolts back in properly).That looks nice. Did you do it your self? how long did it take?
Great review...an awesome upgradeWell just had a fab day down at Litchfields today.
Firstly thanks must go to Iain and his team, namely Neil, Stu and his young assistant whose name I embarrassingly cannot remember - sorry young man!
I had the Litchfield suspension kit fitted and I just cannot believe the difference to my stock 09 suspension.
Previously my car on stock suspension would be, what can only be described, as fidgety. This would show itself on undulating roads where the car would struggle to cope with repetitive dips and rises in the surface such that the harmonics of the car would lead it to almost bounce down the road. This would happen on motorways and when pushing on on B roads.
We'll I am completely and utterly impressed by Litchos kit.
All of that instability is gone. On the drive back up North the car felt supremely planted at motorway speeds such that I could not notice any of that wallowing at all.
When I got back near to my home I took a detour to thrash my car on a B road that I hoon over on the way to work a couple of days a week.
Here I could feel the increased precision on turn in, sharper steering response that makes my MPSS feel very much like the precision of the RFs that I lost when I swapped over to the MPSS.
Then there are two long straight stretches with undulations that previously my car would bounce down like a wallowing whale.
All completely solid and controlled.
This kit is stunning. Why the **** didn't I fit this years ago?
Thanks Iain and your team. Not just a lovely bunch of chaps but also quite good at this tuning malarkey.
Next week comes the Varis bonnet and hopefully my updated front bumper.
Oops sorry terry I forgot to post an answer.Can i ask where you got the SMDs from - also which ones will i need for the speedo and fuel guage
Thanks for the reply - have manage to source them nowOops sorry terry I forgot to post an answer.
I've had a look through my record as I bought these smds almost 3 years ago when the first ones started flickering on my cluster. I know they are Osram plcc4 in blue for the lcd and gear display, white ones for the tacho speedo and other gauges.
I can't find an email from where I got them from unfortunately. I'll keep looking
