    Good evening,

    I have just purcahsed a new speedo for my e36 318is (because the old one is boring to look at) but i have a problem. My current speedo reads almost 87,000 miles but the one i have bought reads 125,000 miles.

    Is there a diy way to correct the mileage or do i need to seek a specialist?
    (I am not trying anything dodgy, i just dont want my bmw to have alot more miles on the clock then it is supposed to).

    Cheers

    It's a specialist job mate, the equipment used to do this costs THOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSANDS

    Companies such as this http://www.fixmymileage.com/ are a good place to start

    Oh ok mate, thanks. I suppose the fact i have service history backs up the cars proper mileage, but it is slightly annoying.

    Does anyone know how much a job like this would cost?
