Default Take a Look at your speedometers for me...

The other day, while driving to Mississippi, I noticed that the "70" on my speedometer is not centered between the 70 and 80. How many others are like this?

Interesting observation. What I hate is how my HUD will read 3 over when going faster the 60

Seen it on alot of cars. It'* because the neddle sweeping 180 degrees doesn't keep the right speed on a linear basis.

Has it always done that Dan, or is this a result of some mod?

From day one. The dash reads right, but when the HUD hits 60, it adds 3mph. Been told they all do this to trick you in to slowing down. It don't work.

It might be a little closer just to trick you in to driving a bit slower.
