Which would mean he believed the speedo when it told him he was doing 70... and was actually doing 40?

Something like that Charlotte. I think the gearbox ratio to the speedo is common to all models but the ratio in the console/instument cluster box is different depending if mph or kph. The guy who had this quirk BX said his fuel consumption was really odd and he never felt in speed limits he was indicating the correct speed. So yes 90kph is 56mph etc etc, and 132kph is about 82mph.

There is one deffinative method of finding out whether his diesel bx can do 132mph, come down & visit me & i'll take my cooper s & we'll see if the bx can do that speed, i know the mini can ;) TBH, i reckon Tinkley may have gotten to the issue.
2002 C5 2.0 HDI Estate - Remapped - It goes better
2011 Mini Cooper D Clubman - it does over 60mpg
1992 TZD Turbo - SORN - slowly getting there
1991 Gti 16V - Blaze is back on the road since 2008
1990 Gti 8Valve SOLD - looks like it's been scrapped
2002 Mini Cooper S - SOLD - i miss this car
1992 TXD - Scrapped in March 2014

I'm not just a username, i'm also called Matthew.

Ah, that might be me! I offered to help Mat out with admin duties on there and decided to change the link to something with the name in, as opposed to just a number. Forgot people might have bookmarked it!

So for those who have, it's now https://www.facebook.com/groups/bxclubUK/

Remembering this original thread is from Fri Sep 05, 2008, just show's how things change. Great shame I have had a lot of enjoyment out of this forum which does now look like it is drawing to a close.

I wouldn't say it's drawing to a close. Was pretty busy last week.

Those who dont go on f/b, well, they obviously can use a pc as theyr on here are missing out on a lot of things. Perhaps they feel they are all too old fashioned to make the leap onto a different communication medium. I wonder if they can text?

Actually 'text' was available on pagers way back in the 70s', just the mobiles that were slow to pick up on it, for a while...... :wink:

Personally, I just don't want to sign up on f/b....also the better tech articles tend to be in the relevant section on this site. Thanks, to all who have contributed to the knowledge base.
