As Richard Welty mentioned a couple of days ago, there is not limit to width in IT, just diameter: 13" for 2002's.

Yes. If you don't wnat them, I do :)

Not necessarily true. My '79 528i's odometer didn't work either and my solution is the same as what Bob A. wrote:

Replacing it fixed the problem (I fashioned a metal "support: using a washer to repair one of mine -- I have two speedometer assmeblies).

I believe Carl Nelson at La Jolla Independent has a couple.

Twas me. My car is a '79 so it's a 4-speed. But otherwise the car is wonderful -- just little nit-picky problems. Definitely worth the parts, but more likely as a daily driver. No rust.

Except for California where a smart inspector would fail you. The trick is finding a not-so-smart one.
