Hi guys,

for those of us who have these, what do you set the calibration at?

Is it a case of having it set at 0.0 if running the factory wheel and tyre size?

I'm running 235/40/18's as apposed to the factory spec 225/50/16's, should I be at 0.0 or a higher or lower number?

Cheers.

get a gps with your speed on it,run at 100ks to gps and check speedo,then use +\- to get it spot on,there was a doco on it,but gps is more accurate. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just checked out the tech doc on this.

I entered my factory wheel & tyre size as well current sizes, at 100km/h on the speedo, actual speed was 102.19, therefore I need to set my calibration at +2.0?

Is this correct?

lol no this is for a POLICE CLUSTER. To adjust the speedo on a normal cluster, you need to change the speedo gears on the transmission itself if i remember correctly. Please correct if i am wrong
