Whether to replace an analog dash with a digital one is an interesting
question. But considering older Audi's notoriously finicky electronic
components, why would you want to?
My CGT's digital dash back-lighting winks on and off like holiday lighting.
Currently, I have no speedo and odometer. Last week, I had no clock. It is
readable, but only when light hits it at just the right angle. Out of
necessity, I have gotten quite good at determining my speed by watching the
87.5 CGT Tornado Red
