I was just at LS1.com and there is a thread about Police mode on the Commodores. Apparently it uses one of the display windows in the instrument cluster to display a digital reading of your speed.

ANYWAY, what i am interested to know is: IS this available on Falcons also?? And if so, which models? What about the EF Falcon?

Does it do anything else, apart from the Speedo difference?

thanks

YEP sure does. Ive got it on my XR,AU.
You hold the trip button in for aprox 10 seconds. and the word speedo appears on the display. by further pushes of the button you can increase or decrease the speed shown on your speedo in 1km increaments.
this way you can gauge how fast the bloke in front or behind is going.
this only works on the police package, not standard XR's

Because your's is an ex-Chaser right? hmm

How about standard Gli spec falcons? Is there a way, using some sorta diagnostic tool hooked up to the computer?

I think that option is not on the AU2 because of computer and dash difference.

Any ideas Ian

Is this a different thing to the "speed alert" on the standard falcons, or does it replace it? (holding the seek button on the steering wheel)

different to speed alert.
the idea is if the speed limit is 100 km/ph on the open freeway, the cops can speed to 110 km/ph hold that speed and then by pressing the button can lower the speedo so it reads 100km/ph, although they are still actually doing 110km/ph.
then by slowing down to 100km/ph (true road speed) there speedo will show 90km/ph this way if they are passed by a car they can then chase and get an acurate speed of the offender.
and vice versa going up the speedo.
sounds complicated but it works I've tried it and it's saved me a few tickets by radar
