Im looking at buying a 2006 civic, but I really don't seem to like the interior digital speedometer it seems annoying. I like analog better, cause it seems that the digital speedometer would keep changing while driving and that would get annoying. What are your experiences?

It seems like everything 2 seconds it would be changing from like 60mph to 61mph then to 59mph. (if driving at a stead rate on a highway) isin't this distracting?

I love the digital speedo, I wish the tach was digital too like the s2000s.
Its not annoying at all, you will get use to it.

The position of it is perfect, you don't have to glance down far to see your speed. Safety first! :thumb: lol.

you will get used to it. I like the placement of it too, how you don't really have to look down since its right close to the windshield

One of my favorite features on the 8th gens.

Yep, at first I was wondering if this was just some gimmick. It doesn't seem like it would be too accurate, and if it was that it would adjust too much and be too sensitive.

But it grew on me quickly and now I love it. Great placement once you're used to it.
