Interesting, I was told on my first drive of a plus 4 at the factory by an older gentleman of the sales/workshop that Peter Morgan had said that the speedo should be in front of the passenger rather than the driver! this is the case with our 1956 plus 4

Love the tiny clock inside speedo Rob. Looks like your later car may have the same.

I always understood that classic cars with sporty aspirations should have a large tacho in front of driver and smaller speedo to the left (RHD). Modern day motoring dictates closer attention to car speed however.

Our modern Mini has both analogue and digital readouts but I find the latter by far the easiest to read. Makes a good case therefore to have an after market digital readout in front of steering wheel, on Roadster at least.

"A boat only has to please its owner".. wise words from a sailing friend. White, Black, Old, New dials - it only has to please the driver and as PerryP said, once you drive you forget about it: too busy trying to keep the car on the road!
Thanks for all the responses - fun to read.
