While I don't have a Cali top, while reading this thread, it made me think about this one company that makes gears for the E28 and E30 VDO Speedometers. I wonder if they could produce a set of the plastic gears or at least know of a company that can. I realize the materials are different, but who knows...

I'll search for the company name if anyone is interested.

Good luck

Update: I now have a 98 Sport with a Cali top. Same issue.

I asked odometer gears. There isn't a big enough market to tool up.

Looking at the pictures of the Cali motor again and looking at the BMW pasrts sticker, I wonder if Rockwell France, if that is a company, still has NOS of the gears?

Anyone headed to France anytime soon?
