someone in the vauxhall design department has obviously got a fascination with knightrider ::)

wouldn't want my dash looking like a hifi's equaliser display !

it's one of those mods where you see it on the net or a mate offers you it and you think "wow that's cool" or "thats querky, i'l have it" but what you should be thinking is "am i muppet?"

I like them, but surprisingly they tend to look more dated than analogue dials, probably because it was a fashion that didn't last very long.

Tomo has the right idea, in a corsa they would be fine as the rest of the car is sh*t aswell but in a calibra i dont think it works.

The novelty will wear off very quickly.

they would be good if there was an updated one, but they look a bit old and tired now i think

manly ? i suppose nothing screams modification success more than adding 2 decades of age to it ;)

Why not go all out and add the knightrider steering wheel and some wood panelling down the sides of the car aswell to give it that aged look.

Chav i thought you was the pioneer of "the calibra should be left as standard as possible" ?
