I know you can have the dash readout display a digital speedometer if you want it too. Other than that I'm not sure.

You can set the Over speed sensor. It is fully outlined in the manual on the function of it and how to activate and deactivate it.

What this does is, once it is activated to the desired MPH you want to be alerted to, it will beep every time you reach that mark. Mine is set at 90mph.

Don't be alarmed if you find after a few hours of uninterrupted driving you get alerted to take a break. You will be alerted with a chime and see a palm tree displayed on your cluster suggesting you take a break. This setting can be deactivated.

There is a wealth of knowledge in the manual.

If you don't pull over within 30 minutes after the rest indicator comes on, the car automatically pulls off the side of the road, your seat reclines, the center console lid opens and a beer pops up. You cannot restart your car for 60 mins.

The dispenser only holds 12 oz cans. Something to do with legal limits and breathalyser tests. If you put a 16 oz can in the dispenser it will jam. There was a TSB out on it. Pontiac made the dispenser to accommodate larger cans. Another design flaw. You have to take your car in and have a smaller dispenser installed, this will prevent the schtukness.

I just tested with Foster's (BINGO) problem solved.

I heard, and this may be a myth, that when you get the fuel warning and keep driving it changes to another warning - like when you're down to almost fumes.

Anyone know if this is true and what the warning looks like? If it's a guy carrying a gas can or something, that would be too funny. I know when I first saw the picnic table and tree in the rest alert I laughed my A off.

IMO since the car was built down under, Holden wants us drinking beer from down under. After market beer may void the warranty.
