AUII XR8 Computer modes

Does anyone know of a way to activate more information from the dash display, such as digital speed, tacho, coolant temp, fuel usage etc?
Thanks,
Cameron

My friend did this once in his EF GLi. I think what you have to do is push the reset button for the trip meter(the one on the instrument cluster) hold it for a short period and then turn the ignition on. Can't remeber exactly and I don't know if the AU's where the same as EF. Give it a go and let the rest of us know.

Cheers
Matt

You mean this works on a humble GLi? I thought the digital display was just an odometer. If anyone knows whether it can be done then please do tell!

I'm guessing all these goodies of digital speedo and tacho are only on cars that have the trip computer.
