    1.8 sport speedo confusion

    Noticed the other day when looking at my speedo that the dials only show mph up to 120 yet after speaking to mk4_Astra and one or two others with the same model there speedos go up to 140 and now I've got 205/40/17 tyres on my speedo is out by 5mph

    Any clues why mine only goes up to 120? Bit worried that someones changed them or something

    Yes, yours are right, same as mine, the earlier models only went up to 120, nothing to worry about.

    as above - early models went up to 120

    later models - ie from 2000 or so had 140 together with a different clock layout - eg x100 RPM instead of x1000 rpm
