I'm sure they could do both. I never noticed how cramped the Focus speedometer is with both sets of numbers until I saw the cleaner looking custom gauges. Now I look at my speedometer and it looks cluttered. I rarely go to Canada, so having no km's won't be a problem for me. I was stationed in Germany so I can convert pretty easy. If I couldn't, then when I was visiting Canada, I'd just tape a small conversion chart on the dash if it came to that. I picked design #2, so the numbers will be a bit larger than the stock ones. Should be cool!

PoD
does anyone know that if the car is reflashed to give the 'quadradant' grid display of the '13 models, if it at all affects the MFT.. i have v2.11 and it works perfectly and i don't want to upgrade to a never version, however, i WOULD like the four quarter grid display inbetween the tach and speedo.

No, it has nothing to do with MFT. There is an entire thread about, just do a search for it.

No more than 30 minutes and that's a liberal estimate.
