On my girlfriends 2002 Polo Sport, the computer on that can work out a range based on whats left in the fuel tank.

The Boras knows how much fuel is in the tank as when plugged in to VAG COM it knows its got say 19L left in tank, is there anyway that I can get the Bora to display a range? Its a 2000 Bora SE TDI.

I wanna know this to!

There is a supplement in the back of my handbook that due to technical reasons the range feature is not available as it tells you about it in the main book.

Its also dam annoying after having it in my polo!

Is it easy to replace the cluster?

Would I have to reset the odometer or is that transferable?

Stealers only in most cases... I think some clocks can be done using vag-com, but don't qoutoe me on that.

I *think* half height displays can do range too it just needs to be unlocked by reprogamming the eprom.

How can this be done? Any ideas?? I do have VAG COM.

I am pretty sure that I have seen the range being displayed on a half height display on another Bora. If there is anyone who knows if you can unlock it, please say! lol

Range = estimated distance able to be travelled on the remaining fuel in the tank.

I figure it should be possible as the car knows it has say 25 litres of fuel in the tank, so it should be able to work out roughly how many miles you have left in the tank.

EvilHomer thinks that it is something that might be unlockable, I sure hope so, if anyone knows.

No wasn't me that thought that!!! I'm 99% sure you need new clocks, what I sed was that some versions of the clocks you buy will be sortable to fit to the car using vsg-com... some will need full stealer input!!![:I]

Hey 180Turbo, stop copying my sig! LOL!!

I have the full height comp on mine and no range and my mate has the half height in his Golf (import) and has the range.

So reading the previous posts can it be enabled as I have the bora sport cluster with the full MFA?

Sorry EvilHomer, my bad!

I appreciate your comments guys, and I hope it doesnt mean new clocks as that seems very expensive.

JRW's mates Golf gives me a little hope as it might be possible to unlock.
