Are there any MPH calibrations on the speedo? Like how we have MPH Major Markings with KMH Minor Markings...do the Canadians have the reverse?<P>

You know oddly enough the 850 doesn't have the little Miles per hour marking on the inside. Many cars do here, guess not the Vo.<BR>Well, I've only really driven the car in the States once, that was just from the Windsor boarder to the Detriot airport to go to Dallas. I tell you my 215/40/17 tires didn't like Detroit interstates... I felt a less choppy ride on a sea-doo! Well it didn't help I was doing 140km/h the whole way because we went the wrong way for half an hour!!! (sorry no mph conversion on that <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> ,damb speedo! Think that is roughly 85mph) <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

haha, maybe, from what you said about your highways turning into virtual plate tectonics after the winter 16"s are the best of both worlds. Although I would maybe consider 17"s with 45 profile but it is more risky at that kind of dough. 16"s are a little cheaper, come in the same great styles and offer a plush ride. Most T-5s came with sixteens, and we've all seen our far share of damaged volans... <BR>Roads here are pretty smooth in general and I find 17"s offer an exellent ride in most areas, actually feel the road more and seem to have more control on the highway compared to the 15"s, thats for sure. <P>
