    Anyone ever noticed that Bertone clocks are colour coded

    Got myself a set of 160mph clocks out of a turbo coupe today. I've never noticed but the facia is gun metal coloured to match the centre console. It also has alloy dial rings fitted as standard. I wonder what colour the Gsi clock facia is?

    Anyway I don't like the effect so I'm going to replace the facia with the black facia and chrome dial rings out of my existing clocks if possible. I seem to remember it is.

    No use asking for the facia as it's already spoken for

    Anybody else ever noticed this?

    LMAO trust you Danny. But did you know they were colour coded before you bought the clocks?

    If you put some 160 clocks in a car that comes with 140 clocks, does the speedo read accurately?
