    I've never seen a red display in BMWs.
    However if it is described as "mint" it could be green ...,,,

    Just wondering if it is a genuine BMW one, or perhaps one of the rebadged ones. Does it have an ///M badge stuck on the front?

    If you want you can PM me the eBay link and I'll have a look see for you.

    Rob,

    I'm pretty sure that it was a Rover unit rebadged if it's got an ///M sticker on it. Technically they are the same unit, but it's not a BMW OEM unit in the strictest sense!

    Hope that helps, Gary
