I was wondering if that could be done...
I'll have to order the metric speedometer part directly from Mazda and I guess and it will render my car STREET ILLEGAL but I'd really like to have all those numbers in the dashboard. I think it'll bring the interior more European looking.

Yeah, I know the metric so MPH/KM H all the same to me.
Then the ECU will have to know the difference, I guess a simple instruction will tell the ECU how to do this.

Has anyone tried this???????????

When I want to make my car more European looking I place a nice bottle of Reisling from the Rhone region and a cheese tray on the passenger seat.


Don't think anyone has done this yet, maybe the one or two Canadians who imported US spec MS3 will know.

hm not sure about changing them out, but the ones sold in Canada have both km/hr and mph information. The mph is simply in smaller text

So I guess adding that gauge will make your car look more Canadian. Buy one from a dealer in Quebec and your car can look more French Canadian.

When I want to make my car look more French Canadian I drive around drinking Pepsi and keep a bowl full of poutine on the passenger seat.

I'm having too much fun with this.

That's the type of gauge I'd be looking for. Is getting one as simple as ordering from a Canadian parts dealer?

If I want to look Canadian I just get a plastic bottle of Canadian Club, a 2Litre bottle of Coke :cheers:, and drive around :csweeney:"phoning" my "hoser" friends.

How's that for Canadian, eh?...sucka's!

HAHAHA!

[/quote]I guess it would be, although replacing a speedometer is sometimes a lot of work. That also assumes the spacing between the markings is the same between the USA and metric parts of the world.
