520i's usually if not always do not have check control so the board in the cluster is different from those with check control - keep this in mind or you'll get a suprise when you open it up! Also, some 520i boards are almost impossible to fix - I rang a place in the UK who re-conditions these boards and they said they wouldn't do the ones in certain 520's because the problems just keep comming back....
To have board replaced at the dealer here in Ireland: 290 + Tax + Labout = ~400
If it'd help you I could dig out the name of that place in the UK - If nothing else they may be able to give some advise.


I have a problem with my dash of my '89 520i. The tachometer works intermittently when warm and even worse when cold...the fuel consumption gauge (under the tach) and the odometer have stopped altogether...any ideas, anyone??
