    I have a 1.4 MA 170 with UK spec dials MPH), I'm in the ROI and want to switch to KPH instruments. I can buy a second hand unit from France. Can it be switched? How difficult is it to do? Should I get a main dealer to do it? Thanks

  7. Should my instruments be lit during the day?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My instrument lights come on and dim correctly when the side lamps are turned on, but not during the day. elearn says they should, which would be good because under some lighting conditions I can't see the minor gauges. Would someone with experience of a similar 156 let me know if they are...

    Can anyone advise if the instrument cluster in the photo was ever produced by Veglia as black faced dials with an ELECTRONIC speedometer in the same configuration. The one in the photo is a cable driven mechanical one.

  10. Changed instruments panel on a 147, can you set it to mark the real kms of the car?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm about to buy a 2005 147 1.6. The seller has a spare instruments panel with the lcd screen that tells you fuel consumptions, average speed and such other things, which the original panel doesn't have. The problem is, when installed, it marks 170000 km, being 70000 the real ones of the car. Is...

    Well got bored on boxing day so finally got round to a job I've been going to do for a while, replacing the facelift instruments on my 147 for the older style binnacle as I just think it looks nicer (I know not all agree!). This is mine before I started, I was also changing to silver dials to...

There may be other things...

    I'm sure this must have been mentioned before, but I've done a quick search and not found anything. Do all Mito fuel and temperature gauges read "Benzina" and " Acqua " rather than fuel and temperature?
