    For anyone thats interested in something really dull and boring, I checked my speedo speed against GPS speed. All in MPH.

    31 28
    41 37
    51 47
    60 55
    70 65
    80 75

    You may ask why the 1 mph over, it just happened to stay steady at that a while so took note. This is for the 1.3. Be interesting if some did the turbo to see if there are any differences

    More or less every car has different measurements, got nothing to do with the motor.

    that table looks pretty much what I got when did the same check, i.e. showing 75 when doing 70.
    Although by over stating speed the speedo is closer to what it feels like:)

    :) although in the Copen buzzing around corners is more of a thrill than speed :D
