sorry i'm not sure how to put it in diagnostic mode but i'm pretty sure your dash can be changed.

For my BA there's a tool which plugs in somewhere but au's?

There is a doco in tech section, you use the trip meter button to do it.
It brings up extra gauges & displays eg volt meter, digital speedo, fuel level in litres, litres/100km av, litres/100km real time etc...
Not really a diagnostic tool.
