: What is a Kombi?

My 535i has been sitting at the VDC for 3 weeks waiting for this part to come in from Germany. I think it has to do with my broken speedometer, documented here during my August ED:


Can someone tell me what a "Kombi" is exactly?

Kombi is european language for station wagon. In BMW talk, that would be a touring model :).

I thought maybe there was another meaning. Something related to a speedometer part.
