Instrument Face difference
« on: 19:14, Fri 05 February 2010 »
Over 5 years of owning 5gtt's one thing has always baffled me and now I'am seeking an answer

Why are some Instrument Faces different on the r5gtt ie here >

Ive owned Both a ph1 and a G & H plated ph2 and not one of them have had them fitted but my freinds H'reg tungy had them

On some I've seen like the example shown above ,  

As you can see just before the numbers on the speedometer  there are dots . where as all of mine have never had this,

 Also the petrol gauge designs  are slightly different on some 5's

I have noticed the petrol gauges differ.

My 'H' plate car had the style you see in the eBay ad you posted, whereas my 'F' plate car had the other style.

Maybe they fancied a change? Very common for car manufactorers to make small revisions over time.
