Regarding M.F. of Bath's comments about digital readout speedometers, another major advantage is the ability to switch the readout between mph and kmh. I have a 2006 Honda Civic Si with that feature (also it's a separate readout above the dash and with large numbers in the driver's line of sight) - great for when I drive from the USA (mph) to Canada (kmh). In my wife's Honda CRV I have to pay very close attention to a smaller size, secondary kmh scale inside the mph scale.

We'll see how much more agreement we get on this. Even BMW (a serial analogue offender) is now fitting digital speedo readouts in the rev counters of MINIs, making the dinner-plate speedo in the centre of the dash no more than a tell tale so everyone in the car knows how fast it’s going.
