Yes, the odometer can be legally changed to match your previous one, it just can't be set lower.

DEFINATELY series 1. Built may '93. There IS ALOT of confusion and varying opinions. How can I tell for sure!? I would think that Series 2 would be stamped as such on complience plate!? Any info would help. All standard no electric windows etc....

Thanks.

i realised that link to the site didnt workk..this is wat it says..

Series II, almost a different model, arrived in April 1992 and, on the base model, brought body-coloured bumpers, glossy black door handles and GLi badges.
The new engine in Series II was a quieter, greatly improved 4L multi-point six cylinder, and it replaced both 3.9L units. Safety was the order of the day, with the EB II gaining foam-filled extra-strength roof pillars, a stronger roof, new seat belt lockers and optional ABS braking. In early 1993, a lap sash rear seat belt became standard - a first for an Australian car.

There ya go :) Hopefully that'll help ya

g'day cobber

just been looking a the scematic if you've got all door sensors (not just front 2) all you'll need is some resistors a 180 + 1200ohm times 4. also you'll need indevidual wires from each door and one to the boot (you'll need a sensor there too.)

I'm putting one of these clusters in a f150 and am changing it green. anyone who's done a led conversion let's see some pics i'm keen to know how those narva led's work are they patchy behind the lcd.

i put one in my ED GLI i cut the plugs off and joined them to the plugs that came with the cluster.
and the door thingy i just disconected so they didnt open and close painted the glass flat black and put a bulldogs mascot on there.
if i done it again id try and make an adapter harness like the ones you get to put stereos in without messing with the car plug or the one on the stereo
