    have searched through the site but cant find a answer also if it helps im not sure if they are original gauges as the rev limiter hits limiter at just over 4000 rpm no way near red is this normal on these cars as never owned one or been in one before got this.

    my 316 redlines at 6k but runs through to 7k before limiter kicks in. the mpg gauge should do that but as you accelerate will drop down .have you tried e36 dash test if not type e36 dash test into youtube to see how its done takes a few seconds to do and will show a fault if they do not rise to max together

    A common problem when your car won't rev beyond 4k is that your timing is out by one tooth.
    Got a man of the people, says keep hope alive
    Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive.
