I'm from Dublin but I'm considering buying my Scirocco in Northern Ireland to get a better spec for less money, even after paying the crazy registration tax and VAT down South.

The one thing that apparently I cannot order in the North though is a speedometer in kilometres rather than miles (unless I order a left-hand-drive!!). I think I can live with the speedo in miles (with the km reading in smaller print), but I wanted to check with some of you who have UK cars - is it possible to change the units for the trip computer and the odometer to km?

Thanks!

Do you mean that you can switch the units for the trip computer and the odometer between km and miles?

Also, do you know if it's possible to retro-fit a km speedometer?

You can do it via the Settings menu onboard, this will make all your trips in KM, I'm not sure if it calculates in kmpg (mpg otherwise) but I can check on the way home for you tonight.

Thanks for that. The metric unit for fuel consumption is usually l/100km, so I guess that's what it switches to.
