    The trouble is that the speedo will still be inaccurate . The reading is based on tpm ( turns per mile ) and that will be affected by the diff ratio and overall tyre size. Best bet is to get the speedo recalibrated to suit or choose an electronic unit that will work from sensors on eth propshaft.

    I too have had to live with an inaccurate speedo for quite a while but i gave up in the end and brought a Talex lite

    Not only is it very accurate but you get camera warnings too and if you go for the subscription it warns you of not only cameras but school locations during school times too

    They often come up on ebay, I paid around £18 for mine but without the subscription which you can buy on line from the company for £3.95 mth but all i wanted mine for was the speedo so im not worried about the speed camera part

    There is a video of the new version of the unit on their web site but i dont know if its just their vid or orthe new unit but i prefer the 1 i have
