    Better, its kind of a difficult question so i'll move it to auto electrical...... but i think you'll find that it won't fit.

    I'm gonna have to agree with Martyn - I think the E46 cluster is too big.

    As I have never heard of anyone swapping them around, I suspect you will probably have to try it yourself.

    Why not give it a bash, and let us know how it goes ? (With photos, of course)

    I wouldn't hold out much hope - But you never know.
