tombilliodeaux is an unknown quantity at this point
Odometer has not worked for about 12 months now. Speedometer started working intermittently, but now has died. I read where this can be repaired, but I cannot take my car out of service for more than a weekend. Can somebody direct me as to how to repair myself? What parts and where can they be purchased?
email me please: tombillliodeaux@hotmail.com

The whole instrument cluster costs about $60 on Ebay. Its relatively easy to replace on E36 - but needs removing of steering wheel. Check DIY guides or do a search - there is a writeup with photos. You'll have a problem though - the odometer reading will not be the same as computer's. Even after reprogramming with approximate mileage, there's still an indicator of odometer tampering (somebody posted exactly where E36 keeps proper mileage settings - but I forgot). But then again, you have an E30, so I don't know anything about those.
