My Ride: 2000 323Ci
Blue/custom LED cluster

Anyone know where I can get one?? I have an Alpine White 323Ci, named Angel, and along with her wings I plan to give her blue halos as well as 5-spoke rims with the spokes color matched to the car. Interior-wise, I'd *really* like to change the cluster, and, if possible, the radio LED lights/display to a more theme-relevant blue

Any help would greatly be appreciated xD

Ps: I found on craigslist a while back that someone with an OEM E46 radio that had the OEN Aux. Cable. Unfortunately, it was from a 2003, I have a 2000; anyone know if it'll work with my year??

There's a guy on here who changed the colored LEDs in his cluster, it actually looks pretty good. Check it out:

I don't believe the AUX cables will work on a 2000

the stereo HU swap out. So his radio would have worked in your car.

^Ahh - that makes more sense. I wasn't sure what was being asked at first. The AUX cable only works with '03 and up head units. I have seen newer head units swapped into older E46s so I know it can be done, I can't tell you how plug and play it is though.

I just changed the color of my spare cluster to white to see how it looks. Check it out. The pictures were taken with the same dash illumination setting and the camera had the same shutter speed, aperature and white balance setting.

If you want white I can do it. I have plenty of LEDs left. I can't do blue right now only because I don't have any blue PLCC-2 LEDs.

If and when you get blues, I'm highly interested, just shoot me a pm and we'll go from there
