Car has the usual amount of pixel lights out in the display. Some time ago I asked a parts man about replacing and he mentioned the part's cost was about $200 but required programing at the dealer. Would very much appreciate someone who has replaced the part giving a run down of what to expect. Thanks!

The dealer's will replace the instrument cluster, which is very expensive. If someone can just replaced the matrix display, I don't see why it would need coding at all.

Call BWNA, from reading other forums, depending on your situation, they sometimes will replace the dashboard cluster as long as you just pay for the labor charges............good luck
