All models with M35080 chip
This chip can be found in all E46, E38, E39 and X5 since model 2001.
You can recognize model 2001 by the diagnostic port: it has not the round one in the
motorroom like the old models, but an OBD II port inside the car
These clusters can be programmed only to more kilometers, not less than before.
So there are 2 ways to get the desired kilometers:
1. You buy a new cluster that has never been in a car (as you put it in it would
return immediately to the original kilometers!) This cluster will be new
coded and the kilometers will be put up from 0 to the desired value. This is
all done with the 912 cluster-plug.
2. The original M35080 is replaced by a new one.

Method 1: new cluster
Not only the E46 is done this way, also the others, but the E46 program is used for it.
Use the 912 plug:

tacho-pro-2008-bmw-15

connect the plug with the original cluster like shown:

tacho-pro-2008-bmw-16 tacho-pro-2008-bmw-17 tacho-pro-2008-bmw-18

select the menu BMW-3er E46- 35080- Tacho–>Diga
• the Tacho Universal saves the original data.
• now connect the new cluster like shown.
• select the menu BMW-3er E46-35080- Diga–> Tacho.
• now you see a list with all saved data. Select the last saved data.
• now the new cluster is coded.
• select the menu BMW-3er E46-35080- Clock
Enter the new kilometers. Now the kilometers are clocked. This may take some
time. Please always check how far it has gone!

Method 2: new chip
Manual to get access to the chip at the end
Use the M35080 clip and this board:

tacho-pro-2008-bmw-7

connect the clip with port 1.
• connect the clip to the original unsoldered M35080 (red on pin 1).
• select the menu BMW-3er E46-35080-clip
• the Tacho Universal shows you the old value.
• save the data.
• Now put the clip on the new M35080 chip.
• Select the menu load.
• Select the data you have just saved and send it with write all to the new chip.
This may take some time.
• The warning data not equal is here not important.
• Select the menu adjust kilometers.
• Enter the new value and press OK.
• Solder the new chip on the circuit board.
Important: never program a value less than 300 km!!!
