On my car both the speedo and the odometer were intermittent. It turned out 
to be a bad solder joint on the Molex male header in the GND circuit on one
of the boards. I resoldered it and the problem disappeared. Later I read
about it in the Audi Service Bulletins (#90-89-TO1) in reference to all
100/200's. It turned out to be a typical problem.
