    Question Coupe Turbo Dials

    Hi All,

    Wondering if any of you could answer a simple question for me, I am looking at buying a coupe turbo about 2001-2002.

    I was wondering what colour the dials should be on these, as a lot of them seem to have white dials and some seem to have black ones. Can anyone tell me which colour is standard and if I have to watch out for anything where the car has black dials? Sorry if Iím being simple.

    Cheers

    Minty

    Thats what i thought but ive seen one on Autotrader with black dials and just seen one that turbo chris is breaking and he advertised the black turbo dials for sale, this is what made me ask the question.

    I first thought the one on auto trader might not be right and has had replacement clocks, really not sure now. Thanks for your reply guys.

    sorry to piss on ur bonfire but not all ACTs had white dials!!!

    I know of quite a few that had black 160s - very rare I will add and usually just the early ones

    Mine was a 2001/Y and had Black 160s - still in use in my car
