Pulses. It's a Hall sender - the front differential spins a shaft with
a miniscule magnet on top, and the Hall sender sits on top. On the Type
44, the pulses are actually _counted_ to derive stepping motor pulses
for the odometer - if the rolling radius of the front left wheel is
correct, the system is capable of incredible accuracy.
The digital dash ur-quattros go one stage further - the system is
entirely digital - no analogue values anywhere. Except in Switzerland,
Since road speed derived from these pulses is used in so many places,
I'd be cautious about messing with it.
