Want to extend a belated shout out to Tanya/OCLES,INC who pulled a seat-back panel off her own e23 to sell me. Had been looking worldwide for a beige replacement panel for 18 months with zero success. She had it in my hands in about 3 days. Outstanding! Who does that?

BMW E32 7-Series Instrument Cluster Lights

Last Updated: 09/08/2018
Parts Group: Instrument cluster
This article discusses the lighting for instrument clusters on the BMW E32 7-series: the 735i, 735iL 740i, 740iL and 750iL

If you're not here for the technical analysis but would rather buy a used unit from us, guaranteed to work and fit, then please select the link below.In buying and analyzing used parts, and focusing on our own three E32 cars, we now understand that the incandescent light bulbs in the instrument cluster are 1.2W except for the main ones, which are 3W.

We have seen situations in which someone had installed a 5W light bulb instead. As a result, the plastic housing melted from the extra heat.
