Does an Audi speedometer have a UAF2115 in it?   If so read through this http://forums.pelicanparts.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=332604&perpage=&pagenumber=4

I know this is a really old topic, but I just noticed that even though the
speedo is 4-5mph over true speed, the trip computer does register pretty close
to the correct speed. I cleared the average speed on the computer, and it
showed 76mph while the speedo showed about 80. So it looks like the offset is
in the speedo only. I wonder how that affects the odometer mileage since it's
part of the speedo. Does anyone know of a VDO gauge specialist? I wonder if it
can be re-calibrated...
