My eyesight ain't what it use to be!

Does any one know if there is a KPH only speedo for the esprit?

Lotus would have fitted KPH speedo's to all cars destined for countries who prefer K's to M's. I'd imagine either your local dealer can help if Lotus still sell them, or try Lotusbits.

No, I dont use the reflective thing on mine, it just sits on the dash. It is a little blurred because of the glass thickness but becuase I dont use the reflective film it's a lot less bright and distracting as well. It has a light sensor on it so the brighter the ambient light the brighter the display so you can see it in the day and it's not in your face in the dark. I like it, I know my speedo is quite a way out esp at high speed so it's useful.

It is also very accurate, +/- 1% MPH

This stuff is retailing here for about 100 Euros, approx 90 GBP - just want to know if it is worth it.

Do you happen to have a photo of your installation handy? I would be interested to see it without the reflective film.

I have tested BMW's HUD, which is really brilliant.
