      Right!
      I did the same, back in 2013, when I replaced my transmission (used a MkIV 2.slow A/T starter.) Lighter, lower power consumption, higher cranking speed = easier startup = win!

      DO IT!
      I've been doing that since June 2010 (mine does get stored every winter, from 'first snow' in the fall (roughly Thanksgiving), until 'roads are clear of salt' in the spring.) And, it makes...

      This is backwards. Actual speed cannot exceed displayed speed, sir. Not just E.U., either - everywhere.
      Therefore, speedo may (and, often will) display slightly higher than actual speed; speedo...

      Have dealt with this at BMW for quite some time - M50/52/54 heads erode behind the thermostat housing, get pitted in the gasket area. Our fix is to simply thoroughly...

      But, when I can buy a 1000' pull box of Cat6 from Monoprice for ~$94 (IOW, it's at price parity with 5e now), why not? :)

      Now, 6a or 7? THAT would be overkill.

      I'll bet that either that switch wasn't so awesome, or you has a damaged cable. Because, unless your internet connection is >100Mb, the upgrade, on its face, shouldn't have made a difference. ...

      5e is fine. Both 5e and 6 will do Gigabit, up to 100 meters.
      6 is more resistant to external interference.
      6 will do 10Gb at longer (far longer) lengths than 5e will.


      That said.... ...

      There should actually be both a 'tire pressure info' label (linked to above), and a VIN / certification label.

      You do realize that odometer tampering is a felony, right? ;)

      Displayed mileage is to match the vehicle (read: the body shell), not the engine.

      But, actual question was answered above.

      There is (*supposed to be) a circlip installed on the end of the speedo cable.
      You'll need to transfer that, as I've never seen a new speedo cable come with it. Why, I don't know..... :screwy:
