Spedometer? I bought a grey faced one, and I didn't want to get it reprogrammed at the dealer, but I think I really buggered it, the speed needles have wires attached one the bottom... anyways, I have the grey face, but is there a special way to take apart the speedo and not damage it, and then swap the faces?

Thanks!

I have not done the M5 ones specifically BUT I have done them on the e36 and my Porsche.

Once you remove the cluster it was just a process of deduction about which screws to remove. Just sit down with it at the table and disassemble it. Be VERY careful of the needles and their removal. I used a fork to pry them up and off with ease. And do not use much pressure when putting them back on. If you push the needle to far down on the stalk it will rub against the dial face and thus not work right.........I had to disassemble my e36 ones a few times to get it just right.

Hope that helps a bit.
