Hey Mike,

the rings look great in there, glad you were able to install them

Now you just need a nice Momo wheel to complete the interior

Why does yours say MPG (Miles per gallon) in your tach, when in my '86 it says L/100. Cause your speedo is in KMs. So I was just wondering why the difference.....

I think it's because his car started out as an eta but with the M50 he needed at 7K tach. He must have got the tach from a US car.

ding ding... and spence wins the race lol...
yup.. had a 5k eta tack and now with the M50 i need a 7 k tach. I also needed a gauge cluster that has support for a Check eng light as the 86 eta never came with one. Also the 86 eta dosent alow the swapping of the tach "chip" to chnge from 5k to 7k .. so now i have a 1987 325i cluster with a eta speedo

Just found your pics. Looks good. Did you make the heat shield yourself? I have been meaning to make one for a while now.
