I'd recommend getting it fixed. Same thing just happened to my
speedo. Cost me $85 to have the odometer fixed (at 140k).
I learned an interesting fact out of this. Although my
car could run without the instrument cluster installed,
the latter was somehow part of the alternator charging
circuit. So I was able to drive to the speedo repair
shop, but I couldn't leave.... But different cars
have different circuits. Mine is a VW not an Audi.
To get it repaired, try Palo Alto Speedometer Service. They've
been doing it for 20+ years and claim that 60% of their
business is mail order. 415-323-0243
