On page 26 of the September Roundel, it was mentioned that 1976 BMW 2002 have speedometers that are about 7% optimistic. Jim Ryan, Technical Services Manager of BMW of North America, informs us that they have a fix -- a corrected speedometer face.
This item is available free through BMW dealers. The corrected facing fits right over the old one. Mr Ryan emphasized that this fix applies only to 1976 cars, and only to 49-state (non-California) models.
