The only thing I dont like about them is the tacho is a weird design as in it sarts from 4 oclock and goes to 1 oclock and that the door open signs seem to give occasional problems. Things I like about them... I can compare my speed with another car as its easy to look over in the night and see what the speedo in anoter car is reading
hehe, yer thanx Ghia5L... I already new that thanx.. but what i ment, wen u put the pedal to the floor, does it get confusing watching all those numbers go up, can u just glimps at them and tell were ur at, like a neadle??? Its just 0-60Kph, goes awfully quik, can u read it while accelerating.... Have i made ne sence?? thanx alot tho fellas... i like that tacho like that, tis y i want one :-)
I don't recommend accelerating full bore while starting at the speedo either. The digital and analogue systems each have their points, so there's no right or wrong. Certainly nothing to worry about either way.

the digital dash is crazy in my opinion, i love it, even though mine reads 500,000+kms on the clock! i havent had any problems so far with mine, my speedo is out 8km/h but thats because of the cable not the dash (had the trans changed not too long ago). you cant see your acceleration but you get the idea when you see the numbers jump about 10kms when you change gears!
