I'm fairly sure it's from an early Morris Minor. What diameter is it?

You could look for an overlay, that sits on top of the current display, with the equivalent speeds in mph.

But the best option is to have a new speedo fitted,...

Ken,

Bathurst is in the former prison colony, known as Australia.

I didn't think of the TT. That is a pretty special track/island. I'd say it was a close call between Isle of Man and Nurburgring:...

Those answers aren't quite right.

EBD is a refinement fitted to some cars equipped with ABS. It's intended to prevent over-braking from the rear wheels, before ABS kicks in.

Not to be confused...

Really? Not even Le Mans? Monaco? Spa? Nurburgring?

It's possible that it's the best track in Australia. But then, Paul Hogan is the most famous actor in Australia, and Fosters is the best lager in...

From what I can see, the 1-series is horribly overpriced, so it competes with the horribly overpriced Audi A3, and the similar horribly overpriced Mercedes A-Class.

Fortunately, there are enough...

Delicate ECUs? What the hell are you talking about? There's not a single 'fact' in this reply.

The 1.8T engine is enormously tuneable. A remap releases an obscene amount of power from such a small engine. Have a word with Revo or Jabbasport, they can get these engines to pump out around 270...

Cheers Cliffy. I'm still waiting for my Skoda to turn up. It's a Fabia vRS: meant to be fun, but I couldn't find one to test-drive! Had a go in the Ibiza equivalent, and it seemed like a hoot, so...

They're not HID headlights if they've got bulbs! HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlights are normally a factory option: they're difficult to fit and use a fair bit more power than bulbs.

Using big words doesn't impress me. Particularly when you use them incorrectly. It just makes you look like an arrogant windbag.

That's too easy.

The Honda. Why? Because Honda engineer their cars.

Renaults are nailed together by blind crack addicts. The build quality and reliability is just appalling.

You'd be a lot better off just buying a Golf GTi, with the 1.8 turbo engine. A ridiculous amount of power can be realised from this with a remap, but they're pretty quick as standard.

GM now owns Saab, for what it's worth. The last Saab 9-3 wasn't that great to drive, because it used a crappy floorpan from the Opel Cavalier. However, they're distinctive, quick and lovely inside....

It's not normal at all, and Audi's attitude stinks. I would contact a solicitor, because I think you've got a strong case.

Obviously, I was appalled by the events of 11th September. There is no justification for terrorism.

However, the above paragraph is somewhat political, and I'd like to comment on it.

For a road car, I'd have to say an Alfa Romeo Guiletta. I just love the styling.

But for a competition car, I'd go for a Lancia Stratos.
