About Speedo Clockss
Probably the most studied dial on a vehicle’s dashboard is the speedo clock. BMW Speedo clocks, which are normally driven electro-magnetically, are a dashboard instrument that advise the driver of the velocity at which the vehicle is travelling. This is obviously a vital component which not only enables the driver to maintain a safe driving speed but also ensures that the speed of the vehicle is kept within legal limits.
The way in which most BMW speedo clocks work is quite straightforward. Basically, they operate through the transfer of information from the wheels of the vehicle to the speedo clock itself. This is achieved by means of the speedometer cable, which makes the connection between the turning wheels and the speedo clock. In simple terms, the faster the wheels turn the faster the cable rotates. This rotation creates an electro-magnetic reaction in a speed cup that is located inside the speedometer. This magnetic reaction is responsible for the creation of force, which pushes the needle of the speedometer. The faster the speedometer cable spins the greater are the magnetic forces that are created, causing more force and more movement of the speedo dial.
BMW Speedo clocks are an essential component and it is illegal to drive without a working speedometer. If a speedo clock is faulty it should be repaired or replaced immediately.
- It might not be the accessory that everyone needs, but for BMW drivers in South Africa who were worried about carjackers, the 'Blaster' was a flamethrower that shot huge flames from either side of the car. Not currently available in the UK…
- That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
- One of the reasons older BMWs keep their value is because it's easy to get spare parts for even the oldest models. That's because BMW has carried on making car parts, even for cars that were built in WWII.
- Electric cars might be all the rage now, but BMW built their first one in 1972 and called it the BMW 1602e. It didn't quite make it to market though, thanks to the fact that it could only hold a twenty-minute charge.
- The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
