Allows you to add four (4x), 52mm (2.5”) Gauges VDO or AEM Style Gauges to your factory Center Console!
I originally designed and sold this in the early 2000's, with the renewed interest in Classic BMW, I made a 2nd batch available for purchase.
Mounts behind center ashtray with factory hardware.
Applications: E23 745i with Executive package, E23 Automatic and Manual Transmission Cars (LHD) only.
Cars without leather trimmed console (Executive edition ) may have 1mm side clearance not visible from seated position.
All 5 speed cars without the long wood trim piece around/underneath the shifter boot will also accept this gauge panel.
Different trim pieces may vary so dimensions are based on Factory recommended install of the Cassette Box.
If you have the Cassette box remove the box and this panel will take its place.
By using digital sender boost gauge no additional holes are drilled, simply pass signal/power wires behind the ashtray trim piece and route below.
