    306 speedo hits 210 when parked

    Hi all,

    This is a wierd thing I have noticed a few times when parked. Either at the traffic lights or when get out of the car while it is still running, occasionally the speedo and tacho needle will flip over to the other side of the dial and stay there for about 3 seconds........then flip back.

    Has anyone got an idea if this is just a problem in my car, or whether it actually means something.

    It has freaked a few passengers out though - way cool =)

    Perhaps there is a relay that is sticking or makes intermittent contact while it disengages--the ECU gets confused with the varying or inconsistent voltage and causes weird things to happen, like instrument fluctuations.

    Just thought I'd toss that out there...

    Brendan I think your car was a limited factory special that accidentally made it's way to your local dealership.

    First of all it's 0-100 in 7.8 seconds, now it's 0-210 in 0.2 seconds!

    I'm sure the black beast does it when you start the car sometimes.
