3808Re: [bmw e28] Faulty Odometer
- Aug 23, 2005I know there are lots of 5 series BMW's around here in the states
which are "for parts" and you could get another gauge cluster
to swap speedo heads with. I myself have a spare that has a bad
"S.I." board in it. It's not right for a european version, but is U.S.
It is very easy to pull a cluster out of a car.... I could offer it
up if you could use it...
