After some digging the 2002 205V appears to have the upgraded BorgWarner MDC and not the Medallion. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this unit? I am trying to do a full gauge replacement.

Quick question: I do not have pp installed or a GPS speedo. I want to make the change to analog. Do the pilot tubes have enough slack to get to the back of the speedometers? If not, is there a solution other than running new tubes from front to back?

Yes, the tubes will stretch, not an issue. Not that it matters for yours now, LOL!

Another X5 owner!

Well, I finally tackled this on my 02 Star. First, thanks to JeffD for his work in documenting the process and second, thanks to the additional contributors.

I'll see if I can add any value to this thread.
I went with Faria gauges that came with the GPS speedo. The GPS speedo requires a constant 12v and a switched 12v. Coming out of the MMDC 24 pin connector, there is a red and a red with black stripe. The red is switched and the the red with black stripe is where I picked up the constant 12v. I picked up the grey wire for the tach off of the PerfectPass. There was enough wire stuffed behind the kick panel that I was able to pull it through and tap in to the wire. I did have to install an new temp sending unit and run a dedicated wire, the analog gauges will not work with the two wire sending unit found on our motors.

Only thing left for me is a new fuel sending unit and then it will be complete.

Anyone else run into issues with the thickness of the Dashpanel with the Faria Gauges? I feel they need to be .5 inch shorter to allow correct mounting of the gauges....

Anyone have a solution other than cutting the plastic?

Mine all fitted perfectly. Some that were a bit tight I just got a stanley knife and cut the black stuff as my "wood effect" stuff didn't exactly line up with the thicker black stuff, the black stuff cuts super easy. I lobe having all Faria gauges now that work all the time!
