Speedo pic

jonesy528, sorry I can't help you on a source. I think you are looking for the same speedo I have in my 500SL. Here is a picture, which might help others identify what you are looking for....

I have that very same speedo in my 500SL except with a black plate and no silver rings...i love the silver rings.
I was wondering if there is a digital AMG speedo as my odometer doesn't work anymore.

A few weeks ago I'm sure I saw R129 etc. speedo dials clocked up to 300 Kph on eBay.

I looked today but can't find them. I'm sure I was not imagining it.

I thought that the AMG speedo was commonly available,got mine with it pre-installed :D.
I hope there is one with a digital odometer and fluorescent dash lights,

i realize this is a fairly old topic, but i am looking for an AMG 300km/hr cluster. it would need to be a digital one like the first picture. it would also need L/100km not the mpg fuel inefficiency gauge. and to be black and look like the 2nd picture. they must make one that looks identical to the 2nd picture but goes 40km/hr higher. can you buy this from Mercedes Europe? North America? Japan?

anyone with ideas would be awesome.

that's very close. i am looking for black, the white wont go with the interior at all. also, the odometer is the new style, i have the older style with 2 slots instead of one large one. its very close though.

They do pop on ebay.de (germany) every now and then...

I am yet to find one that fits all of my specs; analog trip meter, black, with or without AMG logo, and with 280/300 markers being in an extended range of the needle (0-260range is not condensed, so the speedo does not have to be recalibrated)

I thought it would be a German thing. Well maybe I can order one from MB Germany. You have to be able to because what if the AMG 300km/h one breaks and you need a new one. You must be able to replace it.

My specs are pretty specific. 2 slot digital odometer, AMG logo, 300km/hr, black, needle doesn't have to be an extension though.

This is what I have in my car, it has analogue odometer, starts from 20 instead of 0, and has the older AMG logo without the ///

If I'm you I'd stay away from the analogue odometer, the small orange gear inside is made from some weak plastic and will break eventually.
Good luck with your hunt.

Oh and can you verify, what exactly do you mean by needle doesn't have to be an extension? I've compared speeds on the speedo vs a gps and it was accurate, doesn't need calibration.
