FW: FW: [Syncro_T3_Australia] Instruments

Peter has the early cluster with a speedo that counts to 99999 then rolls over to 00000. Also no trip resettable counter.

That's just early and late for Australia.

It depends on who done the ordering as to which options were chosen. You could have ordered a no trip meter speedo in 1992 along with round headlights.

As far as I know, Hartmuts is the only factory fitted tacho on a 14" Australian syncro.

The mind boggles then if some fool ticked the box for it in 1992.
