    Bet you thought a 1.8 could not go this fast.
    Well I had the wonderfull job of changing the bulb for the mileometer on Larisa,s Vectra, had to remove all the air vents then the shroud from around the steering wheel, the dials then with a bit of a fight came out, replaced the bulb and tought I would clean the dials, as you can see I had a bit of fun with them, so I thought I would have a bit of a laugh as this car has never been this fast and I doubt it if it would do more than 125mph.I am now pleased that the dash is all back together and the bulb working, not a job I would like to do too often.

    I certainly would not drive like that either, I let mine get to working tempreture before driving fast, as you now see the car was stationary on the drive at the time, I thought I would leave the tempreture gauge to see if anyone did notice, so top marks to Andrews SRi for observation.
