    So I got a number of photos from my "someday arriving" '89 601 S de lux. One of the photos shows what looks to be a IFA engine tachometer. Wanted to know if this was common, a factory option or something installed much later. I had not seen one of these in any photo that I could find here. t3.jpg

    Let me know.

    Yes, it's an add-on. There is also a fuel gauge in the photo. Guessing then the car is 12V.

    Yes, it's 12v (1989). Figured the IFA tach had to be an option. Was more curious how common (or rare) this is.

    Google "Trabant Drehzahlmesser" and you'll see many images of them. They were a "typical" accessory item and there were different styles of them too. They're from the Messgeraetewerk Beierfeld hence the little sideways MB logo. My 1984 Wartburg has this crazy horizontal gauge tach upper left on the dash (2-stroke).
