I ordered some motometer gears and I'm wondering when/how they will be sent. I emailed you but so far no response.

PM us your order number (or paypal address), and we will check up on your order.

All items sent and tracking numbers sent. The LED swap is a great upgrade!

Group buy for moto units is over. But Bimmerfest members still have special pricing. $20 shipped for moto units. Coupon code bfmoto.
(there are two versions of odometer gears for your e30. A vdo set or a motometer set. Please make sure you are ordering the correct one).

Let us know if you want a paypal invoice and where to send it.

Just replaced mine last night. They were shipped in 2 DAYS! Can't beat the price either.

That old 12-tooth gear was basically a little clump of wax. These are such an improvement.

Cool How to tell what I need?

How can I tell which type of gear unit I need in my '86 e30?

Story of my life. I saw this thread a while back but put off taking the cluster out (again) until today. Got it out and indeed there is clear evidence of gear failure, the only thing I can see is bad enough, the little pinion gear is broke in two. So I put it back in so as to have use of what does work until I get the parts, only to realize upon further reading that I may need to take it out again to determine if it's Moto or VDO.

Good news is, I took a photo, and that combined with the VDO imprinted on the face leads me to think it is indeed VDO. My car is an '87 E30 and I too yearn for a working odo once again. It's late, tomorrow I'll see if I can determine how to order a set.

Here's my pic just in case:

Look for sticker on the back of the gauge saying the type.

Yeah, I did that - a $120 re-man, not sure what was re-manned, but I got it cheap, or on a work trade anyway - carpentry for my parts guy who has been good to me, but in short order the odo stopped - I finally took it apart and sure enough, the pinion was in two pieces, only one of which I could see.

This is the correct way to fix your odometer.
