Speedo Instrument Cluster Problems - BMW 1 SeriesBMW 1 Series Dashboard Instrument Cluster Problems & Repairs
The BMW 1 Series came fitted with a BORG manufactured dashboard instrument cluster (speedometer) unit. These units have been known to fail under varying conditions and the faults can also vary quite a lot. The instrument cluster faults are not specific to certain models, all BMW 1 Series E81/E82/E87/E88 can be affected, including:

BMW 116i / 118i / 120i / 130i / 116D / 118D / 120D / 123D

If you have a faulty instrument cluster unit, you may have been advised to have the part replaced. A new replacement part will come with a 12-month warranty and can be very expensive and will require coding / programming to your vehicle. The other common alternative people go for is the purchase of a second-hand used part which will come with a limited warranty, typically 30-90 days and will also require coding / programming to your vehicle. A used instrument cluster must also be calibrated to read the correct mileage which is an additional cost.
