    Changing dials

    My astra's dials only go up to 120, would it be possible to fit a white dial set that go up to 140, or will it effect that car??

    NO u cant just whack on a different dial mat and hope it will still read the same

    best off buying a 2nd hand set of clocks with the factory original dial mats reading either 140/160 as required

    5min job to replace clocks over
    see here: http://www.astraownersclub.com/documents/technical/binnacle.pdf

    then if ur uber bothered about having the mileage adjusted then pop over to a "mileage correction specialist" (check out small ads in auto trader an the likes) stump up about 50 notes and a few mins later job done.

    And for anyone reading this thinking "Surely Vauxhall can reprogramme the mileage?" Nope - only on clocks with 99 miles or less so in the real world this rules out the majority of owners

    Any clocks from a mk4 will work in ur motor mate - plug n play - just watch out for diesel ones - ie 6k redline as opposed to 7k of petrol clocks.

    Youve got 120/140/160 to choose from
