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
