    I don't miss the analog gauge enough to do anything about it. The digital gauge does allow for interesting info bites like current consumption, average etc. which I think is great.

    I am getting way better fuel economy on this car than any that came before. During the winter months I was averaging 6.2 l/100km. The rest of the year i am getting 5.3 l/100km. On a highway trip with a little running around town I am getting 4.7 l/100km. This is doing about 85 kmh and slowing to 60 kmh for small towns.

    It definitely rewards top gear driving at moderate speeds.

    I wish the trip computer had a control button on the steering wheel like the Versa, instead of reaching through the steering wheel to select the different screens.

    4.7. That's awesome. I was excited when I got 6.2.

    I grabbed a dome light from a Nissan Juke. It has 3 bulbs instead of one.I also switched the bulbs to LED. It make a massive difference.

    Thanks I'll look into this. Is it plug and play or is some re wiring required?
