    The mileage is recorded in other components to avoid people just swapping clusters.
    I think there is a dash test for the E46, you could try that and see if that clears the glitch.

    Do a binnacle test, Hold down the mileage reset button with the ignition off, turn the ignition key to position 1, Wait for TEST to appear and then release reset button, watch as the binnacle does a self test.
