    Browsing around the Lotus boards, I found some people modding their dials and lcd screens:

    Did anyone here perform any of those modifications?

    The OVMS system had an option to change the digital Amps display to show speed. Done in software - no hardware change.

    Yes, I was aware of this :)

    What about color/needle changes? Did anyone do anything in that field?

    1. Flash roadster-specific firmware.
    2. Enable can write (feature 15=1)
    3. Enable OVMS digital speedo feature

    It's not perfect, but pretty good.
