most probably the gauge itself or the prongs going from the gauge to the circuit board may not be making full contact. Mine does this when it cold and then after a while starts working as things warm up. could possibly be the nicad batteries in the cluster it self. they start getting weak and begin creating intermittent problems. and or a loose cold solder joint.

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.
