MY buddy, a dealer bought a 2005 spyder to sell; sold it to guy in Canada; he noted the car has "mph" but not in "kilometers"...wants to swap my KM/MPH gray background for the blue one he has and give me a few oil chnages for it....why did they not make it with both in 2005? Mine is a 2004 Coupe...........dogdoc

You don't need a speedo in KM to register the car in Canada. Buddy will need a recall clearance letter from MNA however.

are you sure? this is for a spyder. not a QP.
the QP can get by with the digital speedo set to KPH.
When I took my QP in to be inspected I asked if the digital readout was fine even though the speedo was only in mph.

They told me it didn't matter since even if there was no digital readout all they did is add some stickers to the speedo for km anyways.

They told me that they have never had to replace a speedo or cluster on any car in order to get it to pass inspection.

I am very sure that the speedometer should have KPH markings.
please see the RIV site.

What is the RIV site?

hey folks understand that he does NOT want the KM/MPH for legal purposes; the customer just wants KM becasue he live in Canada...I am NOT going to swap it out but the blue they did in 2005 looks really cool I think, dogdoc

you are kidding on the part about he wants KM because he lives in canada, right? many people drive the posted limits as if it were mph.
