Hi Guys, new to the forum and have a few questions if that is ok?

I have just brought ( a month or so ago) a L reg 325 coupe.

1) i have 2 keys for it but if i was to loose one would the new bmw style keys with the boot button at the bottom etc work with my car?

2) Small electrical problem I think. only sometimes whilst driving the speedo and rev counter and fuel and water temp would suddenly drop to nothing as if the car was not started. The engine and stereo etc are still working fine just the dash. dash lights are still on but no mileage either... is this a common problem?

thanks for your help.

Newer keys wouldn't work.

Check the 2 plugs on the rear of the instrument cluster for your speedo problem

Hi Eggy,

In response to the dash problem I have had exactly the same thing on my 1993 325i Auto Saloon. I have performed a number of investigations but no joy yet, its not the connections on the rear as they are locked in so shouldnt be loose, plus I already tried this and no joy. If I find a solution I will let you know but reading on here it appears to be a common problem.
