    i got my 1.8 sport a few weeks ago and i noticed that the speedo only goes upto 130mph. wtf!? i havn't had top end yet but im hopin that it'll b around 130s. but is it possible 2 get a clock fitted that goes further? after some heavy tuning it'll b going off the clock otherwise. anyone got any ideas?? :?

    Strange, most astras read 130mph, but the highest reading the speedo acheives is 140mph!

    It is possible to put a coupe turbo, or gsi dial set in your car, they read 160mph, but they cannot be calibrated to your current engine, no matter how hard you try, unless you put a coupe gearbox in your car, and that would F@@k up your gearing!!!

    Its just one of those things i'm afraid!!

    Trust me i've been there!!!

    If you put the 160 dials in, and look at where the 60mph marking is, it is in the same place as the 50mph marking on the 140mph dial set, meaning your car will roughly read 10mph faster than its actually going!!!

    Great for fooling your mates about your 0-60times!!!!!

    Sorry!
