Wow, that early B5 cluster is very fitting. Sorry to hear about your transmission troubles.

That's too bad about the trans not being compatible... but at least you're mostly only out some time.

B5 cluster looks good. Moving the oil temp gauge to the cluster frees up a spot for boost/vac gauge without having to hack the centre vent, which is appealing to me. Wonder if the TDS-1 from the C4 cars is compatible with the B5? It would be cool to have the DIS display important engine parameters in an OEM+ manner.

That was my thought. It frees up two spots in the AUX gauge cluster since both voltage and oil temp move to the dash cluster. I re-purposed the oil temp gauge for trans temp, and put a VDO boost gauge in place of the voltage.

I have not owned any C4 cars and am not familiar with TDS-1. What is that?
The B5 cluster has the center LCD multi-function display, which I wired into the CQ dash controls so I still have full functionality for MPG, average speed, miles to empty, trip computer, etc.

It's kind of like an early version of the centre screen, allows you to input all sorts of data for display without needing gauges. Boost/vac, voltage, temps, basically any input your Motronic is seeing can be displayed.

That’s pretty cool! That would be pretty cool to display whatever you wanted to. I wonder if you could reprogram the b5 display to do this without any extra hardware..
