Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here's a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the items information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item is worth.


If listing a car
-Post the year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it is currently at and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires
-Post the brand and model
-Post as many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. If tires, any gashes, bubbles, cupping and curb rash
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing Parts
-What brand and what models it can be used on

-As many pictures as possible of every area


Miscellaneous items

-As many pictures as possible of every area


WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post what you are willing to pay. Only douchebags will bump up their price if your price is higher then theirs.
-Where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup only


In case the point was not made, everything being sold must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist. Do not post links to either for your ad. The same goes for other forums. Either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, please stay out of the thread or else be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Only bump your thread once a day. You are allowed to respond to others more then once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

It's been working on and off ever since. I followed the directions perfectly and used the yellow stoppers on both exactly like in the pictures. Kind of frustrated, but it could have to do with something else. Any ideas?
    Mine does the same. Works on and off. Haven't had time to check what's wrong.

      Check the spacer distance, it cannot be pushing down on the gear. Let us know if this is the issue, if not, we will make it right.

        WOW!!! Holy SHIT!! Are you kidding me? Garagistic, (excuse my language) $20-30 dollars for just the gears, that is stealing them with a evil grin :). I remember over 10 years ago when I was working at a independant bmw repair shop there was a vendor that the shop used for fixing clusters and he charged us over $100 to $150 for just the gears to install them in cluster or any repairs was $250 plus.So when I had a car I bought and fixing small things to sell I would fix the cluster myself. And the owner of the shop saw me doing it. And I seemed to be the only one able to work on them at the shop so I had the upper hand. I had my precision Snap-On screwdriver set that I used and still have it to this day and tinker a little on the clusters parting them out and saving any euro faces or indicator warning pieces for my collection in tool chest. It was so bad with pricing from the outside vendor, that the shop asked me to start doing them myself and I would go to salvage yards to find whatever cluster I could and piece them together and I would do the whole set up for $150.00 Gears and labor of installing them at the price. So what you are selling is a bargain!!! I am so glad I know you are on here. Please email me at bmwextremeparts@yahoo.com. I am intrested in vendor or wholesale pricing as I have a bmw parts/car project business license and I would be intrested in multiple sets, Of VDO and motometer. So I can start fixing them for some of my customers and 2 bmws shops that I deal with and know very well. issues or no issues from what people may say, those look to be better then oem and a steal of a price! Just from the prior knowledge and exsperiance I have with this area over a 20 year spand. BMWEXTREMEGUY SHAWN

              Uh, sir, the set of gears has been available for $80 (if not less) for a VERY long time. Garagistic's price is great, but if you were paying $150 for gears, whoever was doing the buying didn't look very hard.

                  I bought these without the discount because I didn't do my research....but they were still reasonably priced and the gears are working great. Recommended!

                            Review submitted.

                            Installed the gears a year ago and still working perfectly. Thank you for a great product and an equally good tutorial.

                              I bought mine off ebay without the discount as well, but they were super helpful and they work perfectly. I made sure the spacers were inserted correctly (I used their business card as a sort of feeler gauge) and then tested it by rotating the gears for a while (but then I obviously put it back to the correct mileage).

                              Their video helped immensely with getting the E1 gear off and putting everything back together. It's an easy project that anyone can do, there's really no more excuse for broken odometers with this inexpensive kit. Thanks!

                                Just read the thread and will order tomorrow. Just need to determine which cluster I have moto or vdo. I saw on another thread that the description on the face isnt necessarily accurate.
