I really don't know which one is more accurate, because my speedo is +/-1mph with my HUD. But I never look at the speedo, cause the HUD is just so convienient.

Bill,

The '02 does have the radio freq/CD track info on the HUD, but not the tach. If i remember right, upon start-up when you see all the characters, there is no provision for the tach read out.

I do miss a digital tach. My Olds Touring Sedan had that function on the trip computer. It also had digital temp display, too...would like that also, as the temp gauge is only slightly better than an idiot light.

Mr. Bean,
I PM'd you back about my rims. Previous owner owned a Discount Tire in Albuquerque, NM so the rims and tires come from there. They're 16 inch Epics. Not sure on cost or variations of color. I tried the website www.tires.com but I don't think they carry them anymore. :(
Thanks for the compliment!

My 97 SSEi is like this as well. I've determined it is about +5 miles off! Any fix?

At 70mph, my GPS, Hud, and Speedo are all within 1 mph of each other.
