A speedo repair recommedation.

Week ago I got my speedo back, overhauled and calibrated, and yesterday I had the opportunity to do timed checks over 3 miles and 5 kilometers (So.AZ has the only Interstate in the country signed completely in kilometers) and the speedo was absolutely right on @ both 60mph and 80mph. Cost, including return/insured postage, was $145.50.

Cost me $9.50 to ship it to them, insured for $300. They all, including the receptionist, sound to be Germans - not real friendly, but spot on as to what you should do (how to ship) and what they'll do. I'm very pleased.

Did they recalibrate based on a different diff/gearbox/tire size combo? or just get it reading right?? Beaner7102

I informed them my tranny & diff were stock and that my 195/60 tires on 14x6 rims are very close to OEM diameter, so they calibrated to the stamping on the metal backing plate of the speedo.

..for $145.50 - that's about what I paid for my NEW 1976 2002

speedo from BMW (5-6 years a go)- thats perfectly accurate.

That was a good deal, BMW list on the 74 on speedo is $ 315.00. They don't seem to account for the change of rear end ratio for the 76 model year either.
