Just discovered my speedo and odo are still in kmh, thought it was a bit strange hitting 60 in under 2 seconds. Any way when I have it converted to mph will the odometer go back to read the original miles. What I am trying to say is at the moment it reads 47500 km, if it is converted will it read 29500 miles when converted ?

Moby,

Afraid not. The odometer will just increment in miles from 47500. All the conversion does is send signals to the odometer and ECU at a lower rate, the car still thinks it's receiving km. You could get the odometer converted to read 29500, but I think that is actually illegal as you are technically winding the clock back. Most cars I know of that have been converted with mileage already on the odemeter have a certificate saying the first however many miles on the clock are actually km.

Yep this happened when I had mine one I gained 4500 but the certificate tells this so really the car has done 4500 less than the oddo reads .bit weird but true.

Thanks guys bit confusing, friend of mine who used to work at Mercedes said they altered the clocks, eg when a new clock was fitted the old mileage was entered onto the new clock. Would Mitsi main dealer do this?

They don't change the clock on the mitsi,and you should also have a letter to say the car has a new clock as this is a clocking offence also I would of thought.

Pretty sure mine was turned back to represent the correct mileage when the speedo was converted.

That would have been done by the importer.
Should be places about that will do it, especially if you have some kind of proof
