    I just had a mental picture of all the writers and editors taking time to change every setting of each car to exactly suit their preferences, only to have the next one to take the car out do the exact same thing, ad nauseam.

    The problem with the speedo isn't just that it's too small, it's also that the range is too compressed. It's marked to 190 mph. The useful portion of that range on public roads in the US is less than half that. And the needle's full sweep is a bit less than 3/4 of the circle to start with. 0-65mph is less than 90 degrees of arc.
