I was driving the car around today.... suddenly found there is a little whole at the end of the speedo...... first I thought it's the place for the backlight.... turns out it's not...... does anyone know what's that for??? :confused: :confused:

No hole on mine but there is, what appears to be, an L.E.D. light at the 280+ range.

Could it be for the people who remove the speed limiter?

Somebody will have to test this theory. :)

Ya i've noticed this aswell, its on my E36 as well, i've always wanted to find out if i could maybe turn it into a shift light and make some use out of it!

I thought that hole was for a light sensor or something....

i wish

wander what it will do...... would be nice if it's the shift light....:D
really want to know what will that do.... :confused: :confused:

it's for people that tamper with the speedo....then they try to disconnect the onboard computer that light comes one...

...i think i recall reading that somewhere...

so, if anyone wants to disconnect their speedo to find out, be my guest
